Pakistan continues kill & dump tactics, body of yet another Baloch enforced youth discovered

Occupied Balochistan: The body of Ali Ahmad alias Laeya Marri was discovered from Mastung in the early hours of Monday morning. Laeya Marri a young cousin of Advocate Zaman Marri, was abducted on 07-04-2010 while on his way back home Killi Kamaloo from Hazar Ganji fruit and vegetable Market.

Balochwarna had reported his abduction on 08-04-2010 “Five Marri Baloch namely Kamal Khan Marri, Laeya Marri, Lala Marri and Lal Mohammd Marri were on their way home Killi Kamaloo from Hazar Ganji fruit and vegetable Market when the FC stopped their car on Hazar Ganji link road. They have immediately been blind folded and put into the vehicle of intelligence agencies that have already been waiting for them at the check post. Their Alto car has also been taken away. Few hours later a relative of the abducted men Mr Azad Marri has also been detained when he was going to the Shalkot police station to register an FIR against the forced-disappearance his relatives. Like the other man Azad was also first stopped by the FC near Qambarani road check post and later they handed him to the intelligence agencies”.

According to family of shaheed Laeya Marri his body was mutilated and brutally tortured. “Nobody would have been able to recognise him if his Pakistani official captors had not put a letter in his pocket with his name written on it”, said one of his close relatives on conditions of anonymity. The eye-witnesses also say that the cause of his death could well be brutal torture and it is suspected that he was only shot with a single bullet in the head after he had already died due to gross torture.

A cousin of Laeya Marri advocated Zaman Khan Marri, a lawyer of the Balochistan High Court, was made a victim of enforced disappearance on August 18, 2010 by Pakistan's Military Intelligence and his tortured body with three bullet holes to the head was recovered from the nearby town of Mastung on September 5, 2010.

It is worth mentioning that in less than a month the Pakistani intelligence agencies have murdered around 20 enforced-disappeared Baloch political activists. All these victims were in the list of Baloch forced-disappeared persons and FIR against their abductions had been registered in local police stations nominating the Pakistan Para-military forces and Intelligence agencies as their abductors. The high court of Balochistan had also been informed and asked to take notice of the abduction of Baloch activists at the hands of intelligence agencies but all to no avail.

The continuous helplessness of the police, the deliberate denial of courts and the criminal silence of the Balochistan provincial government illustrate that they are all guilty of the slow but steady genocide of Baloch nation. While Baloch already have no expectation of justice from the indecent rulers of Pakistan, they are also slowly losing hope from the International Community and International Human Rights Organisation because of their disgraceful silence on the ongoing atrocities in Balochistan by Pakistan and Iran.

The families of Baloch disappeared persons have been protesting in front of press clubs in Karachi, Quetta and Islamabad but International bodies such as UNHCR, the UN and ICRC (International Red Cross) took no notice of their pleas and appeals for justice. Most of the Baloch are of the opinion that despite the presence of International Human Right bodies in Balochistan they have chosen to remain silent spectators of the Baloch genocide.
