While Intelligence Bureau (IB) in its communication to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) stated that there is “nothing adverse” against Bugti, Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) has so far not conveyed any objections.
GENEVA, September 28, 2016 /PRNewswire: An event was held on September 26, 2016, during the ongoing session of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva, to highlight the human rights atrocities in Balochistan, especially the kill and dump policy of the Pakistan army. Among the prominent people who participated in this event, were prominent Baloch nationalists Brahumdagh Bugti and Mehran Marri, and Executive Director of the Balochistan House, Tarek Fatah.
Brahumdagh Bugti, president of the Baloch Republican Party, is living in exile in Switzerland after the assassination of his grandfather and revered Baloch freedom fighter late Nawab Akbar Bugti.
In a swift counter attack, Baluch leader in exile Brahumdagh Bugti today threatened to sue Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Sharif for crimes against humanity and genocide of Baloch people in Balochistan.
“All Baloch should unite to oppose CPEC”
GEVENA/WASHINGTON: The exiled Baloch leader and the President of the Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahumdagh Bugti said on Sunday that the Baloch will not directly negotiate with Pakistan’s civil or military leadership as there is no trust between the two sides and only the United States can play a role of a mediator because American assistance provides lifeline to the Pakistani military and Washington has the ability to influence Islamabad’s violent and repressive policies toward the Baloch.

Nearly 50 billion dollars’ worth of Chinese investments aimed at linking the country to the Arabian Sea is being billed as a game changer in bringing prosperity to energy-starved Pakistan and a boost to its sluggish economy.
Scores of ambitious energy and industrial projects are part of the 2,500-kilometer-long China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which connects China’s western Xinjiang region to the Arabian Sea Port of Gwadar in Pakistan’s restive southwestern Balochistan Province.
Exiled Baloch leader and chief of Baloch Republican Party Brahamdagh Bugti has opposed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the 3000 km project..
By: ANI | Geneva: Exiled Baloch leader and chief of Baloch Republican Party Brahamdagh Bugti has opposed the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the 3000 km project launched in April this year during Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to Islamabad.
The corridor development project from Gwadar port in Pakistan’s Balochistan province to Xinjiang province of China will be linked by rail, road, pipeline and air services. Bugti blames Pakistan for allowing China to invest in an occupied territory.
Swiss-based supporters of the Baloch Republican Party have called for a freeze of international funding of Pakistan’s war on terror. They claim the funds are being used to carry out human rights violations in the province of Balochistan.A group of around 50 Balochis demonstrated in front of the United Nations building in Geneva on Wednesday. They denounced the actions of the Pakistani army and shouted slogans demanding freedom for the Balochistan province from Pakistan.
In an interview with DW, Baloch leader Brahamdagh Bugti says the recent multi-billion dollar economic corridor deal between Pakistan and China is aimed at colonizing the Balochistan province, and must be resisted.
In his maiden official visit to Pakistan – which ended on April 21 – Chinese President Xi Jinping signed 51 accords to inaugurate the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), which will create a network of roads, railways and pipelines linking China’s restive west to the Arabian Sea through Balochistan’s Gwadar port. The Pakistani government says the deals will boost Pakistan’s underperforming economy and generate employment opportunities in the country.
But not everyone in Pakistan agrees with these claims. Some Pakistani politicians, mostly from Balochistan, said on Wednesday, April 22, that the $46 billion project had been launched for the benefit of the Punjab province – where the majority of Pakistan’s ruling class as well as the military cadre come from.
