LAHORE - The Lahore High Court Wednesday directed Secretary Interior Ministry to appear in the court on August 2 to explain why he did not hand over documents to Foreign Ministry, which could be helpful in proving innocence of Dr Aafia Siddiqui in the US court. The record shows that Interior Ministry has not done its job i.e, it did not provided documents, which could help Dr Aafia Siddiqui to prove in the American court that she was kidnapped from Karachi, Justice Ijaz Chaudhry observed in his order. In June, the court had directed the foreign ministry to provide documents to counsel of Dr Aafia in America so that it may be proved that Dr Aafia did not go to Afghanistan rather she was kidnapped from Kara-chi along with her children. The LHC judge passed these order while hearing a contempt of court petition moved by Barrister Iqbal Jafri against Foreign Ministry for failing to write a letter to American trial court judge Berman and delay in sending evidence to the US court in support of Dr Aafia. Barrister Jafri pleaded that if Government of Pakistan delayed in sending evidence about innocence of Dr Aafia it may get late as the American trial court is about to announce its verdict on her fate in few days. Earlier, the court was told that Interior Ministry did not provide documents to Foreign Ministry, which it (foreign ministry) wanted to transmit to America in support of Dr Aafia as per order of the Lahore High Court on June 4. A report was submitted in the court on Wednesday in this regard on the behalf of Sohail Khan, Director General (Am-erican) Foreign Ministry which said that Sohail Khan wrote a letter to Interior Ministry on June 26, 2010 to provide evidence that a criminal case was registered at Karachi against Dr Aafias abduction but the Interior Ministry did not provide any evidence. A deputy attorney stated that Foreign Ministry is still waiting for the reply of the Interior Ministry, which is responsible to collect all evidences about the criminal case of Aafias abduction and documents available with her family regarding her innocence. Report also said that Attiya Muhammad, an additional secretary in the US, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, wrote a letter on July 6 to Pakistans Ambassador at USA that he should assist Dr Aafias defence counsel in the court and soon document for establishing her innocence will be sent to America after taking the same from Interior Ministry. However no response has come from the Interior Ministry till now. Upon this, Justice Ijaz Chaudhry said deputy attorney general should ensure presence of Secretary Interior Ministry who shall explain why documents have not been provided to Foreign Ministry for onward transmission to defence counsel of Dr Aafia Siddiqui to establish that she was not involved in the incident for which she has been charged in the American co-urt. Barrister Jafri pleaded that last month the court had ordered Sohail Khan to immediately write an official letter to the trial judge at the United States district court of New York, stating that Dr Aafia Siddiqui was illegally kidnapped from Karachi in 2003 along with her three children. He contended that Sohail Khan had flouted LHCs orders under influence and pressure from some bounty-hunters on the payrolls of CIA and FBI and not written such a letter in spite of several reminders from him. Further proceedings will resume on August 2.
