A lawyer from Reading who returned to Afghanistan to help rebuild its legal systems has been made director to the secretariat of the Afg-han Judiciary Commission
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. Although the UK has been his home since a Soviet-backed communist government seized power in Afghanistan in the late 1970s, the 57-year-old has now left his job and family in Reading in order to advise Afghan ministers on matters of justice.
