LAHORE The frequent meetings of US officials, including Consul General Carmella Conroy, with Raymond Allen Davis in the jail are in violation of the international laws, the Constitution of Pakistan and the jail rules and regulations, said legal experts. In a new development, the American undercover agent held for double murder went on hunger strike early Tuesday to protest against the jail authorities for not providing him the items he asked for, sources said, adding that Davis ended his strike when US Consulate officials granted his wish a short while after. Legal experts, however, claimed neither such extraordinary privilege could be given to political prisoners nor any other inmate. According to the jail rules, only breakfast, lunch and dinner could be offered to the accused and that too by jail officials themselves. Visitors could not personally serve him food, they said. Provincial Prisons Minister Iqbal Ahmed Channar and jail officials are violating article 25 of the Constitution under which none of the criminals could get such facilities Davis is enjoying, senior Supreme Court advocate Mohammad Azhar Siddique said, adding that the US officials are aware of the international and local laws. Azhar Siddique said that according to the jail rules, dates are fixed for visitors to meet inmates. He said if the Americans were citing their rules and regulations, then they must honour Pakistani laws first. In accordance with the Vienna Convention on diplomatic immunity, there are some points which facilitate an accused, but in the case of shooting in broad daylight, no criminal, even if a diplomat, could enjoy such privileges, he added. Another senior lawyer, expert on prison matters, said the lengthy meetings of US officials with Davis could not be permitted under any law. If such facilities are being provided to Davis, other inmates too should be treated at par, he said. A top police officer, requesting anonymity, said the fate of Davis would be decided by court and he may only be bailed out if the Foreign Office furnished favourable documents. He said security arrangements had been beefed up in view of possible threat to Davis life, including his likely assassination by his own agency (CIA). Inspector General (IG) Prisons Kokab Nadeem Warraich refused to comment on the issue. Jail Superintendent Mian Mushtaq Awan and Lahore Regions DIG Mirza Shahid Saleem Baig, in keeping with their practice, did not offer versions either.
