ISLAMABAD The Supreme Court on Thursday directed the Government to get FIRs of each missing person registered at the respective police stations in all four provinces. Attorney General Anwar Mansoor apprised the apex court that a Commission, headed by a retired judge of the Supreme Court, would be set up within two weeks to deal with missing persons case. A three-member bench of apex court headed by Justice Javed Iqbal heard the case of missing persons here. Justice Javed Iqbal observed that being supreme, no one could make Parliament accountable. He said, People have expectations from Supreme Court but Parliament is entitled to legislate as forum of public representatives. We cannot cross certain barriers. The court observed that it was much awful that missing peoples number was increasing day by day. Justice Javed in his remarks said, How strange it is in todays developed world The AG said that there were many people, especially from Balochistan and NWFP, who left their homes for Jihad while many others were hiding to elude their arrests and they could not be considered as missing persons. Justice Javed said, Supreme Court will not allow anyone to take political mileage out of the issue. The AG suggested that Supreme Court should remand cases of missing persons belonging to different provinces to their respective provinces. To a report submitted by Foreign Office about 6,000 Pakistani nationals imprisoned outside the country, he replied that he had not gone through it and would require time. Justice Javed said if a commission was formed, there was no need to send these cases to high courts. To Amna Masood Janjuas objection to setting up a Commission, Justice Muhammad Sair Ali said that she was not aware of stringent procedure, adding, Supreme Court is not a forum to record evidences. We have to find a resolution and a recourse leading to resolution and not to bypass it, the Commission will be burden sharing, he added. He said Commission would initiate its proceedings from where they had left. The Supreme Court would conduct overall supervision and would not disassociate itself from the progress. Justice Javed urged certain people from Balochistan not to exaggerate number of missing persons as such figures would create panic. Asma Jahangir apprised that 51 people had been missing including 27 from Balochistan, 7 from NWFP, 7 from Sindh, and 10 from Punjab. Hashmat Ali Habib, counsel for Aafia Siddiqui, said that proposal appeared sound but it could be an effort to divert attention. To his objection over efforts for extradition of Dr Aafia, Justice Sair remarked that she could not be treated in category of missing persons. The apex court asked the Attorney General to correct the figures of missing people, besides directing the Government to trace them wherever they were. He added that Government should assign the task to its embassies in different countries to work for the welfare of Pakistanis without any discrimination. On the complaints of relatives of missing persons, Justice Javed said that SC doors were open for everyone at all times. He ensured them that no one could dare harass them while pursuing the cases of their dear ones. Aasma Jahangir of Human Rights Commission, Amina Masood Janjua of Defence of Human Rights Pakistan, and Chairman of Voice of Balochistan also expressed their grievances before the apex court. The bench also took up individual cases of Hafiz Saeedur Rehman, Attiqur Rehman, Abdul Sattar, Ghulam Mustafa Tabbasum, Ali Asghar Bangalzai, Ahsan Arjumandi, Masood Janjua and others and passed different orders. The hearing was adjourned till April 5 and the court ordered to IG and Commissioner Islamabad to appear before the court on the same date.
