Enforced Disappearances in Pakistan, Club suisse de la presse

The 30th of August is marked internationally as Enforced Disappearance day but in Balochistan, the blatant violation of human rights, extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances of Baloch are continuing at the hands of the state agencies.

Balochistan’s Ex-home minister (Sarfraz Bugti) admitted that more than 13500 people have been arrested in Balochistan during a period of the first half year; through National Action Plan.

But state officials are unable to provide details or whereabouts of the “arrested” people, even the relatives of the victims are unaware of the fate of their forcibly disappeared beloved.The arrested people are often killed in staged encounters and are falsely declared to be terrorists.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan says the situation in the province is close to civil war.
