Islamabad, June 19 (ANI): The Parliamentary Committee on National Security, in a bid to "limit" the intelligence agencies' role in picking up innocent citizens, will submit its recommendations on the missing persons' case to the government this month.
The parliamentary panel's chairperson Senator Raza Rabbani has prepared comprehensive recommendations to resolve the issue of enforced disappearances in the country, reports The Express Tribune.
According to these recommendations, parliament will look into the proposed suggestions to define the Inter-Services Intelligence's (ISI) role in the saga of these alleged disappearances. The intelligence operators, under the new recommendations, would not be able to pick any person without approval of the local courts.
"The gist of the recommendations is to enact area specific laws to resolve the burning issue," said a member of the panel.
Under these newly drafted recommendations, special courts will be established in the country, which will be empowered, to investigate the sweeping powers possessed by intelligence agencies. These courts will also ensure the safety of suspects with special emphasis on human rights.
If an agency picks up a suspect, it will be obligatory for it to inform the city police officer/station within 24 hours. The agency would then require to file the case before the special court for a fair trial. (ANI)
