Appeal process: Another attempt to repatriate Aafia Siddiqui
ISLAMABAD : Pakistan is writing a letter to the US, again, seeking the repatriation of Pakistani neuroscientist Dr Aafia Siddiqui, incarcerated in the US.
A New York-based court had found Aafia guilty of attempted murder of US military personnel in Afghanistan. She is currently serving 86-year jail sentence.
“We will adopt all legal and appropriate measures for the release of Dr Aafia,” said Interior Minister Rehman Malik.
It will be the second time that the ministry of interior through, the foreign ministry of Pakistan, will write to Washington for Aafia’s repatriation. On September 2010, Islamabad had written to the US attorney-general, requesting that the Pakistani neuroscientist be repatriated to her homeland.
