LONDON One can imagine the sorry state of affairs at Prime Ministers Office, which is still grappling with the missing Pakistani who reached back home about an year ago, TheNation has learnt. Irfan Faisal, a young Pakistan-born immigrant, bred at village Dhok Gangaal, District Rawalpindi, having Pakistani passport number AC8911731 was wrongfully deported to Afghanistan by UK Border Agency (London). He was deported on mistaken identity and the UK Agency did not care to get his identity verified whilst at all times his record was available at British Embassy Islamabad. On May 13, 2009, Pakistani lawyer Barrister Amjad Malik issued a notice to the then British Foreign Secretary David Miliband on this missing Pakistani and sought his repatriation to Pakistan with compensation. TheNation and Nawa-i-Waqt carried the story in their issue of May 15, 2009 after which, the British authorities intervened and Irfan Faisal was released from Afghan base. He returned home in Rawalpindi on May 30, 2009, within the legal notice period. His lawyer said that after a letter written to British Foreign Office & UK Border Agency on May 3 giving 14 days notice of lodging a petition for compensation and repatriation, the UK Government used its influence to send him back to Pakistan to avoid media headlines due to their blunder as the issue had already come into limelight which cost Irfan three months of unlawful imprisonment. It is quite ironical that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilanis Secretariat wrote a letter to Irfan Faisals lawyer on April 17, 2010, 11 months after the incident, that they are still looking for Irfan Faisal as he is still missing in their papers despite written confirmation to Foreign Office. According to the letter, that an official leaked it to The Nation, Foreign Office through its Afghan Desk wrote to Prime Ministers Complaint Cell confirming that the record of this Foreign Office was thoroughly checked and the name of Irfan Faisal could not be traced. The Embassy requested the Afghan authorities to find out if Irfan Faisal was at one of the detention centres in Afghanistan. Though the Supreme Court of Pakistan has ordered a high-powered committee to oversee Pakistani citizens stranded abroad, however, this development shows the kind of mess of Pakistans Foreign Office is in on missing persons as well as the actual whereabouts of their citizens abroad, in detention centres and or wrongly extradited or repatriated to hostile countries.
