Care should be taken... By Zafir

24 December, 2012

How on earth can a democratically elected parliament pass the controversial Fair Trial Bill? It is beyond comprehension why politicians have succumbed to the pressure of the military establishment. The matter of grave concern is not the law but how this law could be manipulated against the people. It will be the politicians who shall be the most affected as such bills will give cover to the agencies who are already bugging and tapping phones.

In my opinion, this bill will not aim to achieve higher conviction rates but will be used to settle personal scores. Political manoeuvring for vested interests and ulterior motives would be the order of the day and the list of missing people may increase. Those at the helm of affairs, and especially those heading the intelligence agencies, should ensure that their subordinates not misuse the power granted to them and that the ordinary people are not framed for personal enmities.

It is requested that the authorities responsible take extreme care regarding the privacy of the people.
