An organised campaign to malign ISI, MI revealed: Report

ISLAMABAD - National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Justice (retd) Javed Iqbal has revealed an organised campaign to malign Pakistani intelligence Agencies.

He said on Monday that foreign agencies illegally apprehend people and pin the blame on Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Military Intelligence (MI).

Briefing a meeting of National Assembly’s Standing Committee for Human Rights, headed by Zahra Daud Fatima, Iqbal, who is also the head of a committee formed to probe missing persons, said that 70 per cent of the missing persons are found to be ‘pro-military.

He said that often the kidnapped refrain from sharing details of the incident out of fear. A terrorist’s family should not be labelled a terrorist, he argued, adding that “with the state rests the responsibility of the family of the missing persons.”

The NAB chief said that statistics shared for the missing persons in Balochistan are contradictory to reality. “There have been several militant groups present in the province and many ‘missing persons’ have gone along with them,” he said. Former CM Balochistan Aslam Raisani and Nasrullah Baloch had been tasked to provide with the list but to no avail, the NAB chief complained.
