Islamabad, Fri, 16 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 16(ANI): Pakistan's intelligence agencies are a wild bronco unrestrained by any considerations of the law or humanity and they should be regulated through stringent legislation and rules, an editorial in a daily has said.


The Daily Times editorial said that the MehranGate scandal has raised questions on the role of Pakistan's intelligence agencies and added that Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's comment during the trial that all (intelligence) agencies are flouting mandate reflects the stark reality.


It added that Pakistan could put behind the scandal only by observing normal democratic political processes and due process.


It highlighted the latest development in the case that the Pakistan Muslim League-N has decided sue a central character in the scandal, Younis Habib on charges of defamation following his testimony in the court that Shahbaz and Nawaz Sharif were among beneficiaries of the funds doled out in the affair.


The editorial said that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif's corruption allegations against Pakistan People's Party is questionable as there are very few politicians, who are clean.


Referring to varying official estimates on the missing persons issue, it said many families of missing persons might to reluctant to approach the authorities due to fear and lack of confidence in receiving justice but the possibility of authorities underestimating figures to trivalize the issue cannot be ruled out.


"But there may also be an effort on the part of the authorities to underestimate the numbers to depreciate the seriousness of the problem. It would seem to be in the fitness of things and in the interests of justice for the missing persons commission to get to the truth about the number of missing persons with an authoritative listing, before the authorities and the intelligence community can be pressurised to produce these unfortunate souls and move on to providing them and their families due process," it added.
