Missing Bloggers case: DG ISPR clarifies Interior Minister remarks
RAWALPINDI: DG ISPR held a press briefing where matters relating to internal security and regional security were elaborated in detail.
When asked about the case of missing bloggers, he said Pakistan Army has nothing to do with the disappearances of the bloggers.
“We do not think that the interior minister’s statement that he would talk to intelligence agencies to recover the missing bloggers, or saying that it’s not the state’s policy, was to implicate someone,” Maj-Gen Ghafoor said.
“A state has tools and instruments which it uses to implement a certain decision and we don’t think that the interior minister accused anyone [of involvement in disappearances].”
Armed forces and intelligence agencies are also part of the state and the bloggers were recovered as a result of the state’s efforts, the DG ISPR added.
