The leadership of the Islamic Taliban movement, which seized the power in Afghanistan, has banned to take away the American currency out of the country as Taliban Spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid reported on Twitter.

“All citizens are reported that any moving of dollars and antiquities from Afghanistan through the border is strictly banned,” Mujahid said.

According to him, everyone caught on the transfer of the mentioned things will be arrested and be brought to account.

According to the BBC, the Taliban militants banned women from going to work.

The Taliban representative told to the journalists that working women in Afghanistan should stay at home until the proper systems of provision of their security would be created. According to Mujahid, it is a temporary measure.

“Our security forces are not trained (in) how to deal with women - how to speak to women (for) some of them. Until we have full security in place... we ask women to stay home,” Mujahid said.

UN Human Rights High Commissioner Michelle Bachelet expressed concern not only over the human rights in Afghanistan. She also has information about the recruitment of children by the Taliban, as well as about punishment.

Subsequently, the UN Council has approved a resolution affirming its "unwavering commitment" to the rights of women and girls. However, the resolution fell short of what many human rights groups had called for - in particular, it did not recommend the appointment of a special UN investigator for Afghanistan.

On August 15, the Taliban militants seized Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said that he had left the country to avoid bloodshed as the Taliban entered the capital Kabul. Members of the diplomatic missions of the Western countries and their staff consisting of locals did not evacuate and they stay in the capital airport, where chaos was observed.

As we reported, in total, the US military evacuated 17,000 people from Afghanistan, including 2,500 US citizens. 

After the Taliban have seized the power in Afghanistan, the International Monetary Fund on August 18 said it had suspended the country's access to its financial resources, including around $440 million in new monetary reserves.
