Noor Mukaddam case: ex envoys want murder on ECL
ISLAMABAD: The Association of Former Ambassadors (AFA) strongly condemns the gruesome killing of the daughter of former Ambassador Mr. Shaukat Ali Mukaddam and calls for an exemplary punishment for the murderer of Ms Noor.
In a Press Release over 100 former Ambassadors, members of
AFA noted with disgust and horror the brutal and heinous crime and called upon the
Chief Justice of Pakistan to take a notice of it to ensure that justice is done.
Meanwhile, Police and Prosecutor should get hold of all previous medical and
criminal record of the culprit. Supervision of this case would help reduce alarmingly
high crime against women in Islamabad.
The Association appreciated the personal message of support from the Foreign
Minister to the bereaved family that the culprit would be brought to justice. The
Foreign Secretary lent his support by attending the funeral. Nevertheless, the
Association apprehends that the murderer may be made to escape the country using
his dual nationality. Therefore, the Association demands that his name should be
placed on the ECL to ensure that he does not use his family influence and power to
slip away from the country. It is imperative that justice be served.
