Rangers, other LEAs to provide security to Nato trucks: Malik
ISLAMABAD: Adviser to the Prime Minister Rehman Malik on Friday said that security for Nato containers travelling through Pakistan would be provided by Pakistan Rangers and other law enforcement agencies, DawnNews reported.
He said all the inspector generals have been directed to provide security cover to the containers in their respective jurisdiction.
Rangers, local Police would provide security cover to containers in Sindh while Police and Frontier Constabulary will escort containers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
The first containers carrying supplies crossed into Afghanistan on Thursday following a seven-month-long blockade.
Speaking to media representatives outside the Parliament House, Malik said that the Difa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) should not take the law into its hands in protesting against Nato supply resumption. He said he would not publicly announce the plan of action for the upcoming DPC long march.
Earlier, the DPC had announced that it would hold a long march on July 8.
Dual nationality and contempt of court law
The adviser to the PM said that parliament should be the sole decision-maker pertaining to the issues of dual national lawmakers and the contempt of court law.
“Politics of petitions is badly hampering democracy,” he added.
He said that antagonists of dual national lawmakers should not forget that Pakistani expatriates send millions of dollars in remittances.
Evidence against Sharif brothers
Responding to a question, Malik said that he had presented evidence to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) pertaining to what he called “corruption worth 32 million dollars carried out by the Sharif brothers”.
