Qasim Hashimzai is the first UK-based Afghan to take part in the Return of Qualified Afghans programme, a pioneering scheme organised by the International Organisation for Migration. Hashimzai, a criminal law expert, was considered one of his country's best legal brains in the 1970s, when he worked as deputy head of the research department of Afghanistan's Supreme Court.
