Osama`s family maybe deported by midnight: Lawyer
Islamabad: Eleven months after the US raid killed the world`s most wanted terrorist Osama bin laden, his family under detention now maybe deported from Pakistan tomorrow.
The al Qaeda chief`s three widows and their children were sentenced to 45-days in detention on charges of illegal entry and residency in Pakistan by a court which also ordered their deportation as soon as possible.
The deportation of the 16 members of the family could happen any time after mid-night today, the Dawn reported quoting Amir Khalil, counsel of the Osama family.
The paper said a meeting was held at the interior ministry last night to finalise the arrangements and the family is likely to be send to Saudi Arabia or Yemen.
bin laden`s three wives - two Saudi and one Yemini - and thirteen children were detained on March 3 and kept in a house in the capital`s Embassy Road. The house was declared a sub-jail.
"They will go tonight or tomorrow early in the morning and they are most likely to be flown to Saudi Arabia," Khalil said.
He said bin laden`s youngest wife Amal Abdulfattah, who is a Yemini, maybe sent from Saudi Arabia to Yemen later, along with the five children.
