(Code name 002) (To protect the identity of the victim HAWCA uses code name instead of the original names)

Six month ago my mother died due to the cancer that she had. my father is addicted to drugs. I am the eldest daughter of the family so I have to take all responsibilities of my family. One day I went to Kabul with my family to take part in the wedding of my sister in law. At the end of the wedding my brother and my sisters’ husband went home without informing me so after three days I went to my home. After 15 days my brother and my sisters’ husband brought a child to our house. when I asked them who is the child, they said it is none of your business and be quite. They took my mobile and told me not to speak about the child with anyone. I was becoming worried about my brother because he is very young and he is unable to differentiate between good and bad.

One night they talked with their friends about this child and at that time I knew that they have kidnapped this child. Before I could report to the police about the kidnapping, our house was surrounded by the police and I was accused of Kidnapping and so they arrested me and put me in jail.
