PAKISTAN: Absence of rule of law provides impunity to military officials

In the cases of disappearances in Balochistan province the family members of victims' submitted evidence before the higher courts including the Supreme Court about the involvement of the army. The FC and ISI have been implicated time and time again in abductions and disappearances but the courts are incapable of taking action against them or bringing them before the law. The courts always order the army and ISI personnel to reply to the charges but showing the utmost arrogance the army has never respected the courts; this in turn shows the impotency of the courts before this powerful institution.
