Ex-European Parliamentarian lambasts Pakistan for sheltering terror groups

Responding to a question on laws against sheltering terror groups and terrorists, a former member of the European Parliament and founder of South Asia Democratic Forum, Paulo Casaca, said that Pakistan doesn't apply the United Nations conventions. "The law exists, there is an article that clearly states that for being eligible for any trade preference, a country must apply United Nations conventions and it is very clearly the case that Pakistan isn't doing it," said Casaca. "At last, the President of United States said it in a very clear way, it is a declaration that is late for some decades, but better late than never. This is so obvious what it says that I cannot understand how can someone ignore it," he added.
