The Supreme Court has directed the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances to submit a report on missing persons cases and production orders issued. The commission was set up in 2011 to find missing persons and hold the responsible parties accountable. The case was heard by a three-member bench, and Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan was one of the petitioners. The top judge emphasized the importance of the case and the need for all to accept responsibility. The court also discussed the cases of journalist Matiullah Jan and other political activists who were “picked up”. Defence of Human Rights Chairperson Amina Masood Janjua also spoke about her husband’s disappearance in 2005. The court directed the Attorney General for Pakistan to present a report on the matter. The Balochistan Yakjehti Committee shared photos of shutterdown strikes in different areas, and the Baloch protesters called for a demonstration across the country. They demanded the release of detainees, investigation into rights violations, and an end to enforced disappearances and extrajudicial killings. They also expressed concern about police crackdown on their protest camp in Islamabad.
