    I am Saif ur Rehman’s brother and i have been the one dealing with the press here in Pakistan with regard to my brothers unjust detention in Chili. Throughout the course of this ordeal i have had next to no help whatsoever from the Pakistani Government. My appeal just fell on deaf ears and today the foreign minister claims to have met me and my family? I would like to assure everyone that Mr. Rehman did not even drop in a phone call let alone a visit. i would appreciate it if the above mentioned statements are corrected.Recommend
