[DAWN] The Justice Project Pakistain (JPP) denounced the beheading of yet another Pak citizen, Mohammad Imran, in Shumaisi prison of Jeddah on Thursday.|
A labourer from Chichawatni, Imran, travelled to Soddy Arabia
...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor. When the oil runs out the rest of the world is going to kick sand in the Soddy national face...
in August 2011 for employment and was detained upon his arrival at the airport in Jeddah. He was implicated in drug-related charges and was sentenced to death without access to meaningful legal representation. The entire trial was conducted in Arabic, a language he did not understand, with no translator.
According to the JPP, there are close to 11,000 Paks languishing in foreign jails, with over 7,000 of them in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia alone has 3,400 Pak prisoners and has executed at least 26 of them this year, including a woman.
Families of prisoners on death row are often not notified prior to their execution, depriving family members and loved ones of the chance of a final goodbye. The bodies of those executed are also not returned ‐ which is a gross violation of all legal and moral protocols, and Islamic injunctions.
Imran’s family has requested the Saudi government to change this inhumane precedent and return his body so that they could perform his last rites, the JPP said.
The JPP highlighted that a prisoner transfer agreement between Pakistain and Saudi Arabia had failed to materialise despite Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman promising the release of 2,107 Pak prisoners during his visit to Islamabad in February this year.
