Claim of Mama Qadeer about 25,000 missing persons in Balochistan not true: Justice Javed
October 12, 2017

PESHAWAR, 12 October: Chief of the Commission on Enforced Disappearances Justice (Retd) Javed Iqbal has said the claim made by Mama Qadeer about missing of 25,000 people in Balochistan was not true.

According to media reports, Justice Javed Iqbal told the Senate’s Human Rights committee on Wednesday that the statistics of the missing persons in Balochistan are highly exaggerated. He said those who had made such claims have not provided list of the missing persons to the Commission so far.

Senator Farhatullah Babar said the status of the lists of missing persons was controversial. He said the situation would have been different had the Commission on Enforced Disappearances asked critical questions from concerned institutions instead of Mama Qadeer. He criticised the commission for not presenting its initial report despite six years of its creation which is a matter of grave concern.

Justice Javed Iqbal said the matter of missing Pak-Turk school staff from Lahore will be resolved soon.

Farhatullah Babar also proposed performance evaluation audit of the Commission on Enforced Disappearances in the light of the terms under which it was established.
