The Chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons Nasrullah Baloch has asked the incumbent chief Justice ofPakistanto form a commission for recording the statements of the missing persons and he himself should start hearing their cases. He said the commission that was formed for missing Persons was doing nothing except advocating the Intelligence agencies stance. The federal and the provincial governments are not sincere with Missing persons cases. Had it been that case, they would have paid a visit to the family members of the missing persons showing their solidarity.
VBMP Chairman was talking in front of Quetta Press Club along with Sami Baloch, the cousin of Altaf Rind, where the family members of Missing Persons were holding a set-in protest against illegal abductions of their love ones by state Intelligence agencies. Talking to press media, Sami Rind said that his cousin Altaf Rind was abducted at gun point along with his two friends by Intelligence agencies on June 7, 2012 while travelling from Ziarat toQuetta. He said that they were afraid of his cousin life, lest he met the same fate as his elder brother, Sameer Rind, who was abducted, later they received his mutilated dead body.
He said the Intelligence agency’s personnel in plain clothes accompanied by Policemen abducted his cousin. He appealed to the International human rights organizations to play their role in pressingPakistanto release his cousin along with other abducted Baloch missing persons.
Chairman Nasrullah Baloch, on this occasions said the abduction-like-arrest of Altaf Rind, the District coordinator of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons from Mand, along with his two friends, is the walking proof that there was no let off of abductions of Baloch people till today.
He said prior to this, another two coordinators of VBMP from Mastung district Faqir Ajiz and Yasin Baloch from Kalat were abducted and they received their mutilated dead bodies. He said the chief Justice ofPakistanwas the only hope for Baloch nation for the save recovery of missing persons. He said he refused to submit his statement before retired IG police ofPunjab, because of presence of secret agencies representative in the investigation committee; who would never allow the cases to be submitted against them.
He asked the chief justice ofPakistanto form a commission comprising of standing judges to record the statements of missing persons’ relatives and then he himself conduct the hearings.
He said his organization had no political motives. He said the statement that has been issued against his organization by current commission head is regrettable. He said the accusations that the detailed information of the missing persons had not been compiled, is not correct.
Previously the family members of missing persons, including Gaffar Lango, submitted their statements before the committees, but the end result was that they received their mutilated dead bodies.
Currently the head of commission is in a panic bout, because members of missing persons families have refused to appear before the commission. The members of the commission are only interested in fork and privileges. He accused the head of the commission of praising the government; even all know the government is not sincere about missing persons’ case. Had it been the case, high officials of the government would have visited the protesting members of the missing persons’ families inQuetta,KarachiandIslamabadshowing their solidarity.
The chairman of Voice for Baloch Missing Persons accused the head of the commission of praising the government because he has an eye on the Chairmanship of the vacant post of Pakistan Election Commission
