Bramdagh Bugti seeks political asylum in Switzerland

* BRP spokesman confirms asylum request being processed by Swiss authorities

Occupied Balochistan:Nawabzada Bramdagh Bugti, leader of the Baloch Republican Party (BRP), reached Switzerland where he sought political asylum.

This was disclosed by Mir Sher Muhammad Bugti, the spokesman of the BRP, in a telephonic message to this scribe from an undisclosed location.

He said that Bramdagh Bugti was safe and remained underground for sometime following the assassination of late Balach Marri and avoided contacting people for security reasons.

Sher Muhammad Bugti said that Bramdagh will seek political asylum in Switzerland and he had filed an application with the relevant authorities, which was being processed.

“He will continue to remain in contact with the UN and other officials exposing the massive human rights violations in Balochistan,” Sher Muhammad Bugti said.

He advised the BRP leaders, workers and activists to continue their struggle so that the mission of the “martyred” was achieved.

The government and its spokesman had been persistently claiming that Bramdagh was in Afghanistan and was leading the Baloch insurgents from somewhere in that country. His issue was taken up with the Afghan President Hamid Karzai, during his last visit. The Afghan president promised to look into the matter.

Bramdagh constantly denied the claims made by some of the TV anchorpersons that he was in Afghanistan, and claimed that he was somewhere in Balochistan, among his people, waging a struggle.

A few days ago, Nawabzada Hyrbyair Marri was also given political asylum in Britain on an order from a British court.


  1. Bramdagh denied he was in Afganistan. Recent events tells he flown from Kabul->India->Switzerland. This act clearly tell when he was hidding.

  2. All these leaders are NOT sincere with their people. From hundreds of years they suppress their peole under the shadow of poverty and subservientisim. Millions of dollars were given by the Govt as Royality to Balochistan and these leader never spend a single penny for their people welfare.
    Now their bank account are empty and they are now remember about the right of their people. It too late Mr Bramdagh. Leave us alone in Balochistan we dont need you any more.
