Company Description

Background:

The Criminal Justice Task Force (CJTF) was set up in September 2005. Its mandate under the Counter Narcotics Law is to investigate and prosecute serious narcotics offences from across Afghanistan. The CJTF includes investigators from the Ministry of the Interior, prosecutors from the Office of the Attorney General and judges from the Supreme Court working in the independent Central Narcotics Tribunal. After receiving cases, the Task Force is then responsible for all stages of the criminal process from investigation and prosecution through to final disposal by the Supreme Court.

The UK and US provide support for the operation and development of the CJTF as an Afghan judicial institution, and the UK provides salary support for the staff of the Task Force and assists the work of its Administration and Communication Units.
