The previous WGEID’s annual report stated that enforced disappearances in Pakistan had reached unprecedented levels, voicing concern over abductions of civilians in Balochistan
The 10-day visit of the UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances (WGEID), comprising Olivier de Frouville, Osman El Hajjé and others, to observe the state of human rights, especially in relation to the ‘enforced disappearances’ primarily blighting Balochistan and to a lesser extent Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh, has evoked indignation and outrage in the National Assembly for its supposed violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and the threat it poses to Pakistan’s integrity. Never have I seen a more fragile and insecure country and its representatives who feel threatened by a WGEID delegation comprising internationally respected human rights experts. No Rambos, these.
London : Patriot Baloch leader Hyrbyair Marri in a statement from London said that continuing discovery of tortured bodies in presence of the UN Working Group is an indication that Pakistan disregards all the International Human Rights Organisations and laws neither does the state consider herself answerable to anyone for its crime against humanity.
He further said since the UN delegation’s announcement to visit Balochistan the recovery of mutilated and tortured bodies has not ended but the Baloch nation has high expectation of the UN team that they will play their role to expose occupying Pakistani state atrocities against Baloch people to the world. He said all the Baloch parties have welcomed the International delegation to Balochistan and offered their full cooperation whereas the government, the state media, the intelligence agencies, Pakistani Parliamentary committees and Human Rights Organisations, which have been shedding crocodile tear about extra judicial killings of Baloch people from past eight months, were now in a state of anxiety.
