LAHORE - Lahore High Court Justice Khalid Mehmood on Thursday directed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to send its representatives to Afghanistan for collecting the details of cases along with charges on seven Pakistani citizens detained at Bagram Theatre International Camp Jail of Afghanistan. The Deputy Attorney General appearing before the court submitted that federal government was trying to arrange meetings of such detained Pakistanis with their families through Red Cross. He further submitted that the detainees had gone to Afghanistan for purpose of jihad. The law officer argued that the petitioner had no locus standi to agitate the matter, and requested court to dismiss the petition. Justice Khalid Mehmood Khan directed the DAG to collect the details of the cases and charges on the detained Pakistanis, and provide theses details to their relatives so that they could approach American Court of Justice for further remedy. The Justice directed to submit the progress report within a month before the court. The Pakistani citizens include Awwal Khan, Hamidullah Khan, Abdul Haleem Saifullah, Fazal Karim, Amal Khan, Iftikhar Ahmad and Younas Rehmatullah. Ms Sultana Noon, a fellow of "Reprieve" in Pakistan, a UK-based organization, filed the petition. The organisation is working for the rights of prisoners. Petitioner's counsel Sarah Belal submitted that seven Pakistanis had been detained at Bagram Theatre Internment Camp in Afghanistan without any charge or trial since 2003. She alleged that they were abducted from Pakistan and detained at the notorious US prison in Afghanistan. The counsel told the court that seven Pakistani citizens were being held without access to lawyers and without having been informed of evidence against them. Some have been abused. One prisoner was merely 16 years of age and was seized two years ago at the age of 14. Another was not permitted to speak to his family for six years, and was believed to be in a grievous physical and psychological condition, she said. Prisoners families appearing in court asked the court to secure the immediate release for their loved ones and lodge criminal case against Pakistani government officials for violation of Pakistani and international laws. Advocate Sarah alleged that Pakistani authorities had a role in kidnapping and extradition of these citizens to Afghanistan. She prayed that authorities be directed to make representation as required by law on behalf of abducted citizens of Pakistan, arrangements for their release and repatriation to country.
