Pakistan: Human rights situation in Pakistan: Oral statement to the UN Human Rights Council 20th Session

, Index number: ASA 33/010/2012

Amnesty International is deeply concerned that the Pakistan government has facilitated the practice of enforced disappearance with the creation of security laws which give sweeping, retrospective powers to the security forces to arbitrarily and indefinitely detain anyone. The organization also regrets that enforced disappearances and extra-judicial executions continue with impunity in Balochistan. Amnesty International is also concerned about killings in Pakistan carried out by the USA, by drones and other means. The USA continues to conceal details of the legal basis for and facts of particular killings.
