A Supreme Court Justice in Pakistan said that the country has to follow UN rules for protecting refugees. The court is looking at a petition to stop the Pakistani government from deporting illegal Afghan immigrants. The government has been trying to deport thousands of undocumented Afghans living in Pakistan. Some people, including a former senator, are saying this deportation is illegal and goes against people’s rights. They want the court to stop the government from deporting or mistreating anyone who has proof of living in Pakistan or who has applied for asylum. The court has asked the Attorney General and other government departments to help with the case. The hearing was adjourned, and more will happen next week. The petition asking the court to stop the deportations was made by a group of different people. They want the government to allow the UN to help decide on asylum applications.
