IBA grants status to Afghan lawyers in exile

The Afghanistan Independent Bar Association in Exile (AIBAIE) has been granted membership status of the International Bar Association (IBA).

The IBA mid-year council meeting saw a unanimous vote, on 25 May 2024 in Bucharest, Romania, to welcome back to the IBA the AIBA in its current format as an entity in exile.


AIBAIE’s Ruhullah Qarizada and Rafi Nadiri stated: “Each and every Afghan lawyer appreciates this moment.

“The extension of our membership of the International Bar Association is a clear message for us and all our members that we are not alone in our critical situation: we know a large group of our international colleagues are with us and support us.

“We believe that with the official renewal of our membership, we will be able to work more effectively for our members both inside and outside Afghanistan via strong and regular coordination with the IBA.”
