    • MPC chairman admits 4,000 Pakistanis extradited to foreign countries deliberately
    • Justice (r) Javed Iqbal promises to meet Manzoor Pashteen to inquire about Pashtun missing persons
    ISLAMABAD: Former president and military ruler General (r) Pervez Musharraf secretly extradited as many as 4,000 Pakistanis to foreign countries, mainly to the United States (US), the chairman of Missing Persons Commission (MPC) claimed before National Assembly on Monday.

    In his briefing to the Standing Committee on Human Rights, Justice (r) Javed Iqbal asserted that as many as 4,000 Pakistanis were handed over to foreign countries, mainly the US.

    The head of the commission on missing persons — who is also the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman — said that the former interior minister Aftab Ahmad Sherpao was also part of the “secret handover”.

    Iqbal blamed the Musharraf regime, stressing that it did so for money. “Most of the extradited persons sent to the US in exchange for dollars,” he told the lower house of Parliament.

    He added that there was no provision in the country’s law for such extraditions. He asked, “As per the law and the Constitution, how could someone secretly hand over the Pakistani nationals to any other country?”

    “No one including the Parliament ever questioned the role of Musharraf and Sherpao in it,” he regretted.

    The NAB chief pointed out that certain foreign agencies were involved in enforced disappearances and gave a bad name to Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI).

    IQBAL PROMISES TO MEET PASHTEEN:

    Justice (r) Iqbal promised to meet Manzoor Pashteen, the leader of Pashtun Tahafuz Movement’s (PTM), assuring to address the issue of missing persons in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

    He said, “Pashteen has suddenly emerged on the scene even though the matter of missing persons has been there for years. [But] I will get in touch with Pashteen and look into his list of missing persons.”

    When Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party lawmaker Naseema Hafeez said the mainstream media had ignored Pashteen and PTM protests, he responded, “Our media does not give much coverage to the issue of missing persons. Pashteen has [at least] received a lot of coverage in the international press and social media.”

    In 70 per cent of the cases, Iqbal claimed, the missing persons were found to be involved in militancy. If a person is involved in militancy it does not mean that his family too should be considered militants, he said further, complaining that many formerly missing persons had chosen not to inform the commission about their ordeals due to fear.

    ‘FIGURES OF BALOCH MISSING PERSONS EXAGGERATED’

    The NAB chairman said that the figures of missing persons in Balochistan were often exaggerated. “The numbers mentioned in Balochistan are contrary to the facts,” he said, adding, “A lot of these people have either left those areas or they are living in the mountains.”

    He said he had asked the Balochistan authorities to provide official figures about the missing persons but they did not respond to his request. “Several groups are operating in the province and many missing persons joined those outfits,” he argued.

    Justice (r) Iqbal said if he had any authority he would have never allowed such foreign organisations to operate in Pakistan in the first place, defending the ban on international NGOs.

    “Most of the international NGOs work with the enemy’s agencies under the garb of welfare scheme,” he claimed while supporting his stance by citing the example of Dr Shakil Afridi.

    MISSING PERSONS’ REPORT

    Iqbal also presented a report on missing persons before Zahra Wadood Fatemi-led committee. He said that a complaint was lodged with respect to 4,929 missing persons from 2011 to 2018. “The MPC disposed of 3,219 cases and investigations are underway regarding 1,710 missing persons,” he claimed.

    Kishwer Zehra, MNA from Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, said that 132 persons from her party were missing and their family members remained unaware whether these people were dead or alive.

    Meanwhile, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has criticised the country’s human rights record over the past year in a new report released on Monday, saying the nation has failed to make progress on a myriad of issues, ranging from forced disappearances to women’s rights and protection of religious minorities.

    4000 majority of them foreign terrorist ran away from Afghanistan after US invasion and hide in FATA . Pak US has wanted person exchange treaty. Not a big deal. Indian shoiuldn't be worried. First look at Kashmir , where death toll pass 90,000 only till 1999.


    Pakistan has extradition treaty with US, says FO

    [​IMG]
    ISLAMABAD Weeks after denying that Pakistan had an extradition treaty with the United States, the government said on Thursday that the two countries had an accord for return of fugitives as per a 1973 notification.

    We have an extradition treaty with the US,” Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said at a media briefing.

    The US-Pakistan accord has roots in a US-UK treaty of 1932, which was then applicable to all colonial territories. Pakistan inherited it after coming into existence in 1947 and subsequently through a notification in February 1973 the US was included among the countries with which it had the treaty.

    List of Musharraf crimes against humanity. And to think I used to be fan of Musharraf as a kid.

    1. Putting honest PM like Nawaz in jail and bringing back martial law.
    2. Giving free hand to Altaf Hussain/Raw agent to ruin Karachi.
    3. Handing over FATA to afghani terrorists after 9/11.
    4. Useless Kargil war which only brought more shame and no result.

    He should be brought back and hanged till death.

    Gladly but Kashmir is off topic here I am afraid. The issue here is Pakistan handed over people to US illegally.

    What the hell was USA doing in pakistan all these years.?

    Picking up people never to be seen again.

    There is no illegal. Treaty sign. What should we do with arab fighters try to hide in Pakistan after 911. Plus, this is estimated list. Every year hundreds of people disappeared while trying to reach Europe for brighter future. Die in desert,boat capsize hundred other scenarios ..

    Honest PM Nawaz , who failed to provide money trail . Who is clueless , who made billions of rupee from selling land on Mars.
