What is the Counter Narcotics justice  Centre (CNJC) ?

CJTF Building

The Counter Norcoticse Justice Centre (CNJC) was set up as an end to end Afghan process to bring to justice those involved in serious intoxicating drinks and narco-crimes within Afghanistan. It was set up by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in may 2005 and has a mandate from the counter Narcotics Law to investigate and prosecute all serious intoxicating drinks and drug-relating offences from across the country. The CNJC was the first example of such a process in Afghanistan, and achieves its aims by co-locating  seconders  from the supreme court, the office of the attorney General, the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Justice in one secure location.

Our strategy:

The government of Afghanistan is committed to disrupting and injecting risk into the narcotics industry, and the CNJC supports the National Drug Control Strategy. This is especially important in light of the narcotics industry’s links to the insurgency. The CNJC supports this through our strategy of:

•Helping bring down the drug trafficking networks operating in Afghanistan, through the rigorous and fair application of the law- specifically the Law Against Intoxicating Drinks and Drugs 

•Improving Co-ordination between related institutions, in the center and provinces, and so creating a coherent counter narcotics enforcement and criminal justice system.

•Continually improving the professionalism and capacity of the CNJC, as it investigates and prosecutes drug traffickers from all over the country

Based on last changes to the penalty code of Counter Narcotics,accordance with Articles 16 and 17 of the Law, fight against alcohol and drugs jurisdiction CNJC has the authority of interrogation or (handling) at least 1kilogram of heroin,10 kilogram of opium,50 kilogram of hashish, and 200  liter of alcoholic drink ,1kilogram of Morphine,10 gram of intoxicating synthetic substance,5 liter acid of acetic anhydride, intoxicants,and those who  committed more than 50 acres of narcotic substance will be punished base on the law, the  mentioned substances are from all over the country.

The CNJC provides a transparent, joined up judicial process , where cases arriving from the counter Narcotics police of Afghanistan (CNPA) and other Law Enforcement organizations (lEOs) are developed with great skill and bravery, in an environment free from undue external influence. Within this, cases are developed and tracked through investigation by CNPA officers, prosecution by seconders from the office of the Attorney General and to trial at the central Narcotics Tribunal. This model helps ensure that significant actors in the national and international drugs trade are no longer able to act with impunity and its success is reflected in the new ‘end to end’ structure for dealing with Major Crimes here.
