ISLAMABAD: A video containing the statement Saif-ur-Rehman was released by his father at a press conference in Islamabad on Sunday.

Father of Saif, Mohammad Ahmed Khan criticised the government for not providing any tangible support, and appealed that the government provide legal council for his son.

The statements in the video indicate that Saif-ur-Rehman was systematically framed by the American Embassy in Chile and by the Chilean police.

Ahmed Khan said no terrorism charges were ever brought on his son.
