Independent Judiciary in Doubt: Raymond Davis Released

Published

on


Lahore: Raymond Davis was flown out of Pakistan on Wednesday after being acquitted of two murder charges and released by a Pakistani court, a US official said.

“Davis was released from Pakistani custody and is out of the country. There was no quid pro quo,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A court freed Davis after blood money was paid in accordance with sharia law, the Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said.
“The family members of the slain men appeared in the court and independently verified they had pardoned him (Davis),” Sanaullah told a private television.

“He has been released from jail. Now it is up to him. He can go wherever he wants,” he added.

Raja Irshad, a lawyer for the families of the two dead men, said a total of 200 million Pakistani rupees (2.35 million dollars) was paid as compensation. That was confirmed by public prosecutor Abdul Samad.

“The family members told the judge that there was no pressure on them to accept the compensation and they had signed the pardon documents voluntarily, independently and with due consideration,” Irshad said.

Police investigator Muneer Ahmed told JAGO NEWS, the deal had been done by “mutual agreement” and the court had received signed family statements before ordering Davis’ release.

Blood money, or “diyya” is a provision under Islamic sharia law in which compensation can be paid to relatives of those killed to secure a pardon, and is commonly used to resolve such cases in Pakistan.

The Davis case had sparked protests in Pakistan, with religious groups angrily denouncing the American who claimed he acted in self-defence to fend off an armed robbery when he shot dead the two men.

    Judiciary has overlooked the whole issue of the US national Raymond Davis, who was arrested for brutally killing two Pakistani citizens and possessing illegal weapons and spy gadgets, and then finally released in a disgraceful manner under mysterious circumstances. I am sorry to say that by overlooking the Raymond case and giving room to pro-US forces, you have disappointed the whole nation, which sacrificed for a judicial revolution, glimpsing a ray of hope earlier in your stand and personality. In fact, looking at the activities in which he was found involved, Raymond Davis was a culprit of the state, not only the heirs of those who were killed. You should have taken suo moto notice well in time to prevent his exit in such a humiliating manner for the nation. I am sorry to say that one of your judicial arms facilitated his escape. So far observed Judiciary is on the helm to push government against the wall, why it did not take any suo moto in the interest of the country and people. Judiciary just disappointed the masses against its promises.

Afghanistan Protests Over Florida Quran Burning Enter Third Day

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan protests against the burning of a Quran in Florida entered a third day with a demonstrations in the south and east Sunday, while the Taliban called on people to rise up, blaming government forces for any violence.

The desecration at a small U.S. church has outraged Muslims worldwide, and in Afghanistan many of the demonstrations have turned into deadly riots. Protests in the north and south in recent days have killed 20 people.

In southern Kandahar city on Sunday, hundreds took to the streets for the second day in a row, and hospital officials said 20 people were hurt in skirmishes between police and demonstrators. On Saturday, nine people were killed and 80 injured when a protest turned into a riot.

At least two wounded police officers and 18 civilians had been brought into city hospitals, said Qayum Pokhla the provincial health director.

A morning protest in Jalalabad city was peaceful, with hundreds of people blocking a main highway for three hours, shouting for U.S. troops to leave and burning an effigy of President Barack Obama before dispersing, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene.

A similar protest in eastern Parwan province blocked a main highway with burning tires for about an hour, with more than 1,000 people protesting against the desecration of the Quran, said provincial police chief Sher Ahmad Maladani. He said there was no violence.

The violence started Friday when demonstrators stormed a U.N. compound in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif, killing 11 people including seven foreign U.N. employees.

The Taliban said in a statement emailed to media outlets that the U.S. and other Western countries have wrongly excused the burning a Quran by the pastor of a Florida church on March 20 as freedom of speech and that Afghans “cannot accept this un-Islamic act.”

NATO officials re-iterated their condemnation of the Quran burning in an apparent attempt to quell the rising anger.
