Aafia willing to file petition against imprisonment: Qureshi

ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Wednesday informed the Senate in a written reply that Dr Aafia Siddiqui is willing to file a petition against her imprisonment.

The foreign minister told that Aafia Siddiqui is completely aware of her case status, and only she can move the court against her punishment according to the United States judicial system.

“Islamabad is continuously discussing the matter of Aafia Siddiqui’s return to Pakistan with the US authorities, and Pakistan’s Consulate General in Houston is constantly in touch with Aafia Siddiqui.”

On the other hand, the opposition walked out of the House owing to the absence of ministers.
