LONDON - Pakistani students detained in the British jails will be questioned on their potential asylum claim as they may not be returned to Pakistan even if they fail in their appeals, TheNation has learnt. According to the sources, officials of the British Immigration also known as UK Border Agency (UKBA) today will interview the students detained in Manchester prison after the failed talks between the UK and Pakistan on the issue, which would trigger asylum rights for detained students. UKBAs failure to get any concession from Pakistan may also affect their continued detention as whilst refusing bail applications lodged by Amjad Malik and Sibghat Qadri, Mr Justice Mitting of the Special Immigration Appeal Commission of the Royal Court of Justice did not give Home Office carte blanche and confirmed that any potential development on 'talks might affect future bail applications. It is also learnt that the UK and Pakistan have failed to evolve a joint 'memorandum of understanding (MoU) dealing with 10 detained Pakistani students fate in the event they are deported successfully from UK. They have claimed in their grounds of appeal(s) that in case of deportation with a label of terrorism posing them as a threat to national security of Great Britain, they fear for their lives at the hands of security agencies, long arms of the law and extremist groups. Pakistani High Commissioner in London Wajid Shamsul Hasan confirmed in his earlier statement that all deportees would be processed in accordance with the law of the land after they were deported as a 'potential threat to the UK. The sources also confirmed that British authorities were not mindful at the investigation being a prerogative of the state of Pakistan over their citizens but sought an assurance that those investigated if tried may not be sentenced to 'death which will materially hold UK in breach of their obligation under European Convention on Human Rights 1950 prohibiting torture and death penalty. When this scribe contacted the High Commissioner of Pakistan Wajid Shamsul Hassan regarding the failure of UK Pak talks he refuted all such speculations and confirmed that negotiations did not take place at all. Wajid also commented that he did not have any knowledge of asylum interviews of the detainees and asked the scribe to contact the lawyers for information. However sources maintained the accuracy of their information. Lawyer for three of the detainees at Manchester prison, Amjad Malik told The Nation Great Britain is a signatory to the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 which prohibits torture, inhuman treatment and death sentence. It will be very difficult for UK to return all detainees without any 'MoU to Pakistan where there is a risk of the death penalty, torture and or handing over to the US agencies for interrogation which may involve waterboarding and in some cases violent methods of interro
