Pak SC warns intelligence agencies against illegal detention of people

Islamabad, Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 20 (ANI): The Pakistan Supreme Court has directed the attorney general of the country to warn intelligence agencies against illegal detention of people.


The court said that Pakistan's constitution guarantees the right to life and liberty, which should not be violated.


"The state of Pakistan, being guardian of its citizens, is bound to implement the constitutional provisions in letter and spirit, particularly fundamental rights, which are guaranteed by the constitution. It is also an inalienable right of all the citizens that they should be dealt with in accordance with the law, following the mandate of due process of law, as enshrined in the constitution," the Daily Times quoted the court, as saying in its order.


"Through the learned attorney general for Pakistan we communicate to all concerned that if they are required to cause arrest or detention of any person, to be found involved in an offence against the state or nation or in violation of any substantive law, he should be dealt with in accordance with relevant provisions of the law, and no permission can be given for illegal detention of anyone because we have to strictly follow the rule of law and the constitution," the court said.


A three-member bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, took up a case regarding the abduction of a 16-year-old boy, who was supplying food to the families of missing persons at a camp in front of parliament. (ANI)
