The hearing was adjourned till July 14, 2012.

During Thursday’s hearing, the Frontier Corps Balochistan once again earned the Supreme Court’s wrath when it failed to comply with its orders in either presenting the ‘missing’ persons or its commandant.

    Prime Minister appears in Courts he is convicted and removed.

    IG FC refuses to appear yet again, Court does nothing except giving statements that no one is above law.

    That ‘unbiased’ and ‘independent’ judiciary: Pakistan style!

    No contempt notice to the IG FC? This guy has been in contempt of the parliament, people’s verdict, civilians, constitution, and has remained in bed with dictators. Yet he thinks he’s god our a Messiah. All his contribution so far is more and more perks for himself and his hand picked buddies, more and more plots. There is no end to his greed and lust for power.

    Enemies of Pakistan are out to malign Pakistan’s security institutions with their propaganda campaign. Their main aim is to turn the people of Baluchistan against the FC and the Army so that they should pressurize the Government to withdraw the FC to the barracks. This will leave the entire Baluchistan undefended and the terrorists will have a free hand to carry out their terrorist acts. If FC says that they do not have any missing persons then we must believe their word. These are extremely unusual times for Pakistan and we must provide full support to our security forces who are sacrificing their lives to defend the mother land. The way our Supreme Court is pressurizing and censuring the security forces, it can be very demoralizing for the troops.

    Kudos to CJ! He is working hard to keep this country intact while the current rulers are busy saving their backs i.e ‘Kursian’

    All those who live in Balochistan know that our lives are not safe because of the number of terror organizations working in the province. Police has long time back lost its potential to combat such terror organizations. It is only FC which still play a significant role in countering the Terror organization and give confidence to the much shaken populace.
    Ever since these organizations have met with humiliation in the courts, they appear to have lost interest in their duty and we are witnessing increased violence and kidnapping by the terrorists. Killing of SEVEN MINERS FOLLOWED BY BLAST IN ANP RALLY should be an eye opener.
    We would request the CJ Please donot leave the population of Balochistan on the mercy of Terrorists and War Lords.Recommend

    Please stop asking to produce the missing people. We are sick and tired of their bodies being dumped. The more you ask the more killings take place. You keep making political and populist statements and they would keep dumping the bodies. Please for God sake stop this charade if you cannot write a decision and stop the killing.

    How convenient for PPP-supporters. Its responsibility of the Govt to stop killings dammit.

    I remeber a similar judgement passed by the honourable Supreme Count on the Kohistan missing 5 girls issue. What came of that?

    So considering that FC does not comply with SC dirrection, is there any plan to pass a contempt of court notice?

    Everybody knows who has the actual power when it comes to Baluchistan. The deep state has been active there for more than a decade. The disappearance of Bloch youth, the killing of their nationalist leaders including Mr. Bugti by Gen. Mush are just a few of the “achievements” of the FC and other security agencies. Politicians come and go but the deep state and its objectives continue even after the next govt.

    For the last almost five years the PPP and its partners are in power. Instead of paying attention to the most sensitive issue of Baluchistan, the PPP leaders are busy in making money and also covering up their previous corruption. Blaming Musharaf or anyone else will not absolve those people of their responsibility who have been in power for the last almost 5 years.
