Panel to work for release of Afghans in Pakistani jails

Feb 23, 2013 - 11:56

KABUL (PAN): A panel of lawyers has started taking steps to secure the release of Afghan citizens languishing in Pakistani jails for committing petty crimes, a report said on Saturday.

The legal team, constituted by the Pak-Afghan People’s Forum, recently met the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa prisons chief to get details about the Afghan inmates and the charges they are facing.

A leading newspaper quoted the forum convener, Alamzeb Khan, as saying they had planned meetings with the provincial inspector general, home secretary and the Peshawar High Court chief justice.

He told a news conference said the forum’s office-bearers in Afghanistan were trying for the release of Pakistani prisoners in that country.
