ISI Chief won't appear before US Court: Pak PM
Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Thursday clearly declared that none could pressurise the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt. Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha to appear before a US court without his consent.
"The ISI is an extremely important and sensitive institution of this country. If they do not agree to go to the American court, then no one can send them," Gilani said it before the national assembly on December 23 while addressing to the lower house of Parliament.
Gilani was responding to a fiery speech by opposition leader Nisar Ali Khan, who criticised the government for it?s failed foreign policy.
"The ISI is a sensitive agency of the Pakistani military and it is unimaginable that we will force their officers to appear in the US court on foreign dictation".
As it is known that a family of Mumbai terror victim has filled a lawsuit against ISI before a Brooklyn court in US.
The Court has issued the summon asking ISI?s powerful chief Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha and other officials along with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) commander Zakiur Rahman Lakhvi and Jamaat-ud Dawa chief Hafiz Saeed to appear before the court in their alleged involvement of November 26-28, 2008, Mumbai terror attack.
Earlier, the Pakistani foreign office Wednesday said in a statement that they are yet to receive the summons and before going through the contents they can say nothing.
