    Dear Sir/Madam! As I mentioned my name above, in August 2016, graduated from the Law & Theology faculty of Kabul University, in April2016 , obtained the Afghanistan Independent bar Association ( AIBA) membership, and continued till the country shuted down by Taliban, recently in April 2020, started working as a Lawyer assistant with Afghan National Soccer Federation too, during my service as a aiba member I have fought too many Cases against Crimanals, Smoglers, Human Kidnappers and Terrorist Individuals (Taliban and ISIS) as you are may aware that they (Taliban) opened the door and released all prisoners with out any expiation in Kabul and provinces, now those criminals and terrorists are working as Taliban important authorities in deferent part of their regime even in their military units, since I have met most of them face to face in Bagram Prison, they will recognize me at the first glance and I will lose my life for sure, since they (Taliban) invaded Kabul I hided my self at home and never go outside even to a grocery store because I don’t want my 1 year old daughter (Zainab hakimi) lose her daddy for ever, So my life and my family(my wife (Hasina hakimi) life are completely in danger.
    Very recently when the US troops left Their main station in Bagram, there were about 29 vehicles left from Austability Company in the Base, the matter was handed over to the Judicial organs to be processed Mr David KhandaN ( Head of the company)sent me a letter and asked me to take case and act as their attorney to the court, طbut unfortunately the case was under process when Taliban invaded Kabul and, since I was an assigned Atturney for the mentioned case and my name existing there, they (Taliban) hesitate to kill me by accusing a spy for the foreign force.
    I am asking you and any humanitarian organizations please save our lives by providing the refuge opportunities for us.
    Thank you and God Bless you
    By Regard
    Hakimullah Hakimi
