Imran says ‘Top mily, political leadership ‘shamefully’ let Raymond Davis go’
Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has stated that a recently published book of Raymond Davis is a shameful account of how the top political and military leadership of the country had let a cold blooded murderer, who was responsible of four deaths, ‘go scot-free’
The PTI chief added that ‘The Contractor: How I Get in Pakistan Prison & Started Diplomatic Crisis’ is a must read for every Pakistani. He further asserted that this book shows why Pakistan ‘gets so little respect internationally.‘
Former US Intelligence agency CIA contractor Raymond Davis in his book has wrote that former President Asif Ali Zardari, GD ISI General Pasha and current Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had collaborated to retain his freedom from Pakistani jails where he was under arrest for killing two innocent citizens.
Uproar in Pakistan has been started by the book which has resulted in a serious backlash from the citizens.
On January 27, 2011, Davis had killed two allegedly armed men in Lahore, Pakistan. The US at the time had held the stance that he has diplomatic immunity however he was sent to jail under criminal charges. After a month of the incident US had revealed that Davis is a CIA contractor in Pakistan.
A diplomatic crisis had surged between Pakistan and US over him especially in context of anger in Pakistani public regarding Davis and US.
However later Raymond Davis, was released after payments were made to families of the deceased under Sharia Law of ‘Diyyat‘. The law allows families of deceased to receive money from the culprit.
