Balochistan issue cannot be resolved till recovery of missing persons: Justice Javaid Iqbal

ISLAMABAD: The Judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, Justice Javaid Iqbal, in his remarks, during conducting hearing of cases of missing people on Tuesday, said that the issue of Balochistan will not be resolved till the recovery of missing persons.

He said that state had completely botched in rendering obligations levied upon it, adding, Balochistan adversities can never be addressed properly unless the resolution of missing people issue.

Justice Javaid said that no agency or institution is exempted from constitution and urged the parliament to play its due role in legislating law for the recovery of missing and abducted people.

He said that the judges had rendered more sacrifices than others for restoration of democracy and judiciary.

“Even judges have rendered sacrifices more than any one else for the restoration of democracy and they are more patriot than others”, he remarked.

The list of missing persons was presented before the court as according to interior ministry 162 people are missing.

Supreme Court has given two weeks to the Attorney General in missing persons case for presenting detailed report.

Cases like missing people pose threat to democracy instead of any judicial verdict, as judiciary and independent judiciary itself is basic element for stability, hegemony and prosperity of democracy, Justice Javaid ruled.

The bench also made clear that the hearing of missing persons’ case will be heard regularly after two weeks. Justice Iqbal, in his remarks, said that the state was failed in performing its duties in missing persons’ issue. He said that the democracy has no threat from the remarks of the court but from such cases like missing persons.

Justice Iqbal said that partial independence was not the real democracy. He said that the judiciary has given more sacrifices than others for democracy.

A three-member bench of the apex court headed by Justice Javaid Iqbal heard petitions of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and former PPP Senator Farhatullah Babar for recovery of the missing people.

Later the Court adjourned hearing of missing persons case for two weeks. INP
