Pakistan: Imminent execution of Mir Aimal Kasi raises fears for others taken into US custody without human rights safeguards.
Amnesty International is concerned that Mir Aimal Kasi is scheduled to be executed on 14 November 2002. In Fairfax, Virginia, USA, he was charged with the murder of two staff members of the CIA in 1993 and sentenced to death; all appeals were rejected. His abduction, by US agents from Pakistan, occurred with the collusion of the Government of Pakistan, in disregard of human rights protection standards guaranteed by the Constitution of Pakistan and statutory law.
