Pakistan to withdraw red notice against BenazirNovember 14th, 2007 - 1:59 am ICT by admin
“Whatever the government requires to fulfil the norms of reconciliation will be done,” the Dawn quoted him as saying, adding that a request had been made to Interpol in this regard.
The decision assumes significance as Interpol had recently asked Islamabad to update it on the status of Benazir whether she still was a ‘wanted person’ by the government.
As per the rules and the procedure of Interpol, red notices are issued against a person on a request of his/her country’s government and the same procedure is adopted while withdrawing the notices.
Responding to a query on the PPP chief’s demand for security and provision of bullet-proof cars on her return to Pakistan this month, Cheema said the government would provide all possible security to the former premier.
Commenting on the situation in tribal areas of the country, he said it was a cause of concern for the government.
He said that apart from action by security forces against militants, the government had engaged tribal elders to curb activities of militants. (ANI)
