Pakistanis stuck in limbo in Afghan prison: Report

Last Updated: Thursday, September 5, 2013 - 12:21

Islamabad: A Pakistani legal aid group says dozens of Pakistani prisoners held by the US at an Afghan prison are at risk of falling into indefinite detention because negotiations have stalled between the US and Pakistan over their return to Pakistan.

Justice Project Pakistan represents Pakistani prisoners held in Afghanistan and their families.
The group says there are about 40 detainees believed to be of Pakistani descent at the Parwan Detention Facility, often referred to as Bagram prison.

Most were taken into custody by US forces following the US invasion of Afghanistan.
The report issued by the group today says negotiations between the US and Pakistan stalled over concerns they might return to the battlefield or face inhumane treatment at home.
