US proposes house arrest for remaining Taliban prisoners

Kabul, Aug 1 (UNI) The United States has proposed that hundreds of Taliban prisoners be transferred to house arrest, after they are freed from Afghan jails, to be placed in a location where they will be under the surveillance of both the Taliban and the Afghan government, TOLOnews reported on Saturday.
This US suggestion, proposed by US diplomats, who are eager to kickstart the intra-Afghan talks, is being seen as a solution to end the deadlock over the prisoner issue that is holding up the peace negotiations.
On the first day of Eid on Friday, President Ashraf Ghani ordered the release of 500 more Taliban prisoners, in response to the group's three-day ceasefire announcement.
Mr Ghani said these 500 prisoners are not part of the list given to the Afghan government by the Taliban and that these inmates will be released within the next four days.
According to Mr Ghani, the Afghan government has so far released a total of 4,600 Taliban prisoners.
He said he does not have the right to decide on the release of those 400 Taliban prisoners demanded by the Taliban, as they are accused of very serious crimes against the state.
Therefore, Mr Ghani said he will call a Loya Jirga, a grand assembly of Afghan elders, to decide on the release of those 400 Taliban prisoners.
