Don’t hand over 6 Americans to FBI: Pak court to govt

Last Updated: Thursday, December 17, 2009 - 13:45

Lahore: A Pakistani court today barred authorities from deporting or handing over six American Muslims detained over alleged terrorist links to any foreign
agency, including the US Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Hearing a petition filed by former ISI official Khalid
Khwaja against what he called the illegal detention of the US
nationals, Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khwaja Muhammad
Sharif directed the federal and provincial governments not to
deport or hand over the suspects to any foreign investigation
agency, including the FBI.

The six Americans, including five youths, were
detained in Sargodha in Punjab on December 9 after they
contacted two militants groups – Jaish-e-Mohammed and
Jamaat-ud-Dawah – as part of efforts to travel to Afghanistan
to join the "jehad" against US forces.

Punjab Advocate General Hanif Khatana informed the
court today that police had obtained 10-day physical remand of
the suspects – Waqar Hussain Khan, 22, Ahmed Abdullah Minni,
20, Ramy Zamzam, 22, Iman Hassan Yemer, 17, Omar Farooq, 24
and his father Khalid Farooq.
