The mastermind and leader of the 2008
militant attacks on Mumbai has won
an appeal against his detention
Is this justice or a finger in the air towards west with best wishes from Pakistan?
Quite frankly SDR is surprised how the US keeps pumping money to the same ones
who basically school and encourage attacks on westerners.
Because thats what the Pakistani attackers where out for in India: Westerners.
So here is every reason for westerners to feel insulted and played with.
BBC writes: Lawyers for Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi said a government detention order issued last week infringed his rights, as he had been granted bail by another court. Analysts say he could be freed as soon as the paperwork is completed. India says a Pakistani militant group carried out the attacks, which killed 165. Pakistan has not convicted anyone suspected of planning the attacks. Lakhvi is among seven suspects who have been in jail awaiting trial for six years. Nine others have been charged in absentia. Analysts say the decision to grant him bail came at an embarrassing time for the Pakistani government....
This while Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif recently promised to crack down on militancy after the Taliban killed 141 people at a school in Peshawar.With this in mind will the Pakistani authorities fight the Taliban by throwing mast mallows and popcorn at them ?
Lakhvi was granted bail by an anti-terror court on 18 December, but hours later the government imposed a three-month detention order and said it would appeal against the bail decision.
This mass murderer´s lawyers even argued in Islamabad's High Court that the detention infringed his rights. And then what ? Well...the Pakistani judge accepted the arguments and quashed the detention order. This terror mastermind is now technically free to leave jail, but has been ordered to appear in court for every hearing concerning his case.
Lets not forget that Lakhvi is widely seen as the person heading the militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which was blamed for the Mumbai attacks.
Correspondents say the charges brought against Lakhvi and other suspects held in Pakistan were mainly based on a confession given by the only gunman captured alive after the attacks, 4 years ago.Legally seen the testimony was given by Mohammad Ajmal Amir Qasab who was executed in 2012 should be legal also after a execution as the statement was given officially what we assume even on film....
India has repeatedly criticised Pakistan for failing to prosecuted any of the suspects, and has summoned the Pakistani high commissioner to discuss mass-muderer Lakhvi's so called case.
There is no logic in discarding evidence given by someone who was executed as a co conspirator.
If this would be a legit way to handle trial.. any murderer could wait for his elderly witness to die and then ask for a retrial based on this. Does this sound like justice or manipulation of justice?
Pakistan must be the la-la land on justice. Its a blatant spit in the face to all the 165 victims and their families! SDR wonders how many of the 165 peoples families now will feel this as a serious, “let down by western Governments” to ensure a trial of the master mind of this massacre.
What we now see with the blessing by US and EU leaders is that Muslim terrorists can attack westerners and get garlands and be celebrated heroes while leaving jail....and is soon free to basically run away to the tribal areas, where there is not eve local police.
SDR feels less hurt by the Pakistani justice that we all know is a joke, but more hurt by our own own leaders indifference to us and our safety around the world.
A good story about the proxy killer:
