IHC reserves judgement in Dr Afia repatriation appeal

ISLAMABAD: Islamabad High Court on Tuesday reserved judgement until Wednesday on a plea seeking a direction for the government to take steps for repatriation of Dr Afia Siddiqui from the US. A single-member bench of Chief Justice Sardar Muhammad Aslam reserved the judgement on the petition filed by Barrister M Javed Jafferi over alleged illegal extradition of Dr Afia.

Deputy Attorney General Amjad Iqbal Qureshi produced a copy of Treaty of Friendship and Commerce 1959 signed between the US and Pakistan before the court. Jafferi alleged that the government had not taken the matter seriously and failed to make efforts for the repatriation of Dr Afia despite its assurance.

Dr Afia Siddiqui had been missing for last three years from Karachi with her three children. She was believed to be held at Bagram jail in Afghanistan by American authorities. On August 5, the FBI suddenly produced Dr Siddiqui in a New York court to charge her for having links with al Qaeda and shooting at US officers in Afghanistan. However, Dr Afia Siddiqui had refused all the US allegations levelled against her that she tried to kill US agents and military officers.
