ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Friday again ordered the directors general of ISI and MI and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief secretary to ensure the production of seven missing persons, allegedly picked up by the spy agencies from outside the Adiala Jail after their release, on February 13.Eleven persons were allegedly picked up by the agencies after their release from the jail in Rawalpindi. Out of them four prisoners Muhammad Amir, Tahseenullah, Said Arab and Abdul Saboor reportedly died in the custody. A three-member bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the petition filed by Rohaifa, the mother of three of the prisoners.The court also issued notice to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor through provincial chief secretary to apprise the bench as to whether under Article 14 of the Actions (in Aid of Civil Power) Regulation, 2011 an oversight board had been constituted. The court added if that has happened then procure the report from the board as to whether they had visited the missing prisoners, who were allegedly detained in the Internment Centre, for ascertaining their condition.On January 30, 2012, Raja Irshad Kayani, counsel for the ISI and MI directors general and the Judge Advocate General (JAG) had informed the court that four detainees namely, Dr Niaz Ahmad, Abdul Maajid, Gulroze and Abdul Basit were admitted in the Lady Reading Hospital in Peshawar, while three prisoners  Mazharul Haq, Shafiqur Rahman and Muhammad Shafique  were in Internment Centre in Parachinar. The court had ordered the counsel to produce the prisoners at next date of hearing, but he failed to comply with the court order. He, however, filed a report on behalf of the agencies.The chief justice expressed annoyance over non-compliance of the order and asked him to tell the name of the person creating hurdles in the compliance of court order. The CJ remarked: “If the prime minister of the country could appear before the SC, why anyone else could not do it.”The court noted that although reply has been filed, but compliance has not been made. “Under the circumstances, we are of the opinion that it is the responsibility ISI DG, MI DG and Judge Advocate General, JAG Branch to comply with the order of the court in letter and spirit,” the court noted.The court directed the counsel for spy agencies to ensure the presence of the missing prisoners, saying they would sit and hear the case at all cost today (Friday) even if they have to do that at late night.When the bench resumed the hearing at 5pm, the counsel for intelligence agencies Irshad Kayani was not present in the court and the bench took strong notice of his absence.“Non-appearance of their (DGs and JAG) counsel also suggests that reluctance is being shown from producing the detainees before the bench,” the court remarked.Peshawar City DSP Imtiaz Ahmad appeared and stated that he had no knowledge of the admission/detention of the four above named persons in the Lady Reading Hospital. The advocate general of Khyber Pukhtunkhawa also expressed his ignorance about their presence at the hospital.The court noted that the persons said to be at the Internment Centre, Parachinar cannot be kept over there without the sanction of the competent authority/Khyber Pakhtunkhwa governor.Attorney General Maulvi Anwarul Haq, on a query, stated that at about 3:30pm, he was informed that the detainees in Parachinar could not be brought as they had to cover a long distance. He added that the detainees in Peshawar shall also be brought along with them.The CJ observed that they had directed Raja Irshad to shift the prisoners by helicopters then why they were being transferred by road. He asked Commander Shahbaz, the legal director at defence ministry, to tell defence secretary for giving his statement on the matter before the court. The court warned that if the respondents would fail to produce the missing prisoners on February 13, the defence secretary will have to appear before the court in person.Tariq Asad, counsel for the petitioner, said that defence secretary had nothing to do with the matter and main responsible were DGs of ISI and MI, therefore the court should issue contempt notices to them. The court however rejected his plea and said that their prime objective was the protection of the remaining prisoners.The court was told that four prisoners had met with their heirs in Lady Reading Hospital. The hearing was adjourned till Feb 13.
