Pak proposal for sending a Judicial Commission to India

October 20, 2010

In response to a question on Pakistan's proposal for sending a Judicial Commission in connection with the Mumbai terrorist attack trial, the Official Spokesperson said,

"Pakistan has made a general proposal for sending a Judicial Commission to verify the statements of the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and the Chief Investigating Officer, who had recorded Ajmal Kasab's confessional statement, and the Para-medical staff, who performed the post mortem of the dead bodies. Pakistan has requested for the views of the Government of India on receiving and facilitating a Judicial Commission for recording the relevant evidence.

India has sought clarifications from the Pakistan side on, inter alia, the law under which the Commission will be constituted, its composition, the nature, scope and modus operandi of the work of the Commission. A confirmation has also been sought that the Commission would only record the statements of the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate and Investigating Officer and that no cross-examination would take place

Once Pakistan has responded to these relevant questions, Government of India would be a in a position to take a decision on the proposal.”
