ASIA: The need to remove certainty of impunity for extra-judicial killings in Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and the Philippines
The Asian Legal Resource Centre (ALRC) thanks the Special Rapporteur on extra-judicial executions for his report and work. The ALRC continues to document an alarming number of extra-judicial killings in Pakistan, notably in Balochistan province, by Pakistan’s intelligence agencies and Frontier Corps. During the first four months of 2011, as many 25 journalists, human rights defenders and political activists have been killed there, typically after having been arbitrarily arrested, disappeared and tortured. Each week, further cases are being reported.
