Listen to the story
Pakistan’s attorney general told the Sindh High Court on Thursday that the authorities had identified three missing persons from Sindh in an internment camp in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The interior secretary appeared before the court and submitted his unconditional apology for his continuous absence from previous hearings in the missing persons case. SHC Justice KK Agha had issued him a show-cause notice at the last hearing. “The court has withdrawn the show-cause letter,” Attorney General Khalid Jawed Khan told SAMAA TV. The government was introducing legislation to criminalize enforced disappearances, he said. “We have provided details of those who were in the missing centers” he added. “We will submit a comprehensive report at the next hearing in August.” The report has already been submitted to the Supreme Court in a separate case, he told the SHC. During the hearing, Justice Agha said the issue of enforced disappearances was extremely important and it made Pakistan look bad abroad. It needed to be resolved at any cost, the judge remarked. The case has been adjourned till August 4.
