Dr. Aafia’s lawyers to reach Islamabad shortly for her repatriation: Malik

Minister for Interior A. Rehman Malik Monday said that lawyers of Dr. Aafia would soon visit Islamabad to consult the Pakistan government and her family as to how ensure her early repatriation from the US.

Addressing a press conference along with Dr. Fouzia, sister of Dr. Aafia here at his office, he said Pakistan and USA have already signed two treaties on exradition of prisoners. However, Dr. Aafia does not fall under ambit of two treaties and the government has to sign another convention with USA for her repatriation.

He said the government in consultation with the lawyers of Dr. Aafia and her family members would go to any length for her repatriation.

Meanwhile, he said a letter would be written to US president Obama on behalf of Dr. Aafia’ s parents and children for her release.
