RAWALPINDI - Former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Wednesday said that Raymong Davis was not immune from criminal prosecution as per record of the Foreign Office, and he did not compromise on this sensitive matter. Qureshi expressed these views while addressing the Rawalpindi District Bar Associations members during his first visit to the bar office here. He disclosed that the US ambassador in Pakistan had threatened him to cancel his meeting with Hilary Clinton in Germany if Raymond Davis was not given diplomatic immunity but he did not oblige. He said that as per the Vienna Conventions of 1961 and 1963 and Pakistans Diplomatic Law of 1972, it is crystal clear that the blanket immunity as being demanded by the US embassy was not valid. After seeing all the documents related to Davis, Qureshi said that he reached on the conclusion that Davis did not enjoy the diplomatic immunity and he clearly conveyed this to the Core Committee of the PPP when he was asked to give his point of view on the issue. Qureshi said that an inter-ministerial meeting had also endorsed this point of view. He said that his stance on the Davis issue was principled and he would stand by his position. He said that nothing is more important than Pakistans sovereignty and dignity and he will tell the people about more facts so that the nation could get the clear picture of the issue. Talking about the independence of judiciary, Qureshi said that the whole nation is united on the independence of the judiciary and for this the people rendered a lot of sacrifices. Lauding the role of lawyers in the move for independence judiciary and against Musharraf regime, the former foreign minister said that lawyers role in ending dictatorships and restoring democracy could not be ignored.
