He regretted that despite America's so called advocacy for the human rights and rule of law, the prisoners in the custody of the US forces were denied even the most fundamental rights of free trial and justice on the pretext that Guantanamo was not situated on US soil.
In his concluding remarks, M. Bilal, Senior Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan, said, “Every Pakistani must work for building more pressure on the leaders who are at the helm of affairs.”
At the end, DG IPS thanked Ms. Sultana Noon and Dr. Shireen Mazari for coordinating the lecture.
