Supreme Court Demands Report on Missing Persons

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has directed the federal government to submit a detailed report on the status of missing persons across the country.

A two-member bench, headed by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, issued the order during a hearing on a petition filed by families of the missing persons.

The court expressed concern over the rising number of enforced disappearances and the lack of progress in tracing these individuals.

The government has been given a two-week deadline to provide the report, detailing efforts made to locate the missing persons and the challenges faced. Human rights organizations have welcomed the court’s directive, hoping it will lead to concrete actions to resolve these cases.

Chief Justice Bandial emphasized that enforced disappearances are a grave violation of human rights and called for immediate measures to address this issue.
