His Excellency Minister of Justice Habibullah Ghalib
Completed his B.A. degree in 1964, he joined the Ministry of Justice at the beginning of what turned to become a life-time career. Between the years 1967 - 1969, His Excellency went to Egypt to pursue his Graduate Studies at Al Azhar University of Cairo.
He did his M.A. in Comparative Islamic Jurisprudence and Law, and thereafter registered -- as a Ph.D., candidate -- his Dissertation titled "The Legality of Crime and Punishment", only to return to Afghanistan at the request of the Ministry of Justice.
He resumed his career as Chief of the office of the Minister, and later as Senior Adviser to the Department of Legislation and the Institute of Legislative Affairs. His Excellency was serving as Deputy Attorney General for Investigation and Petitions when the nation was cast into political upheaval in 1979. He was put behind bars for several months and an ensuing year-long house arrest.More
