Sehgal on Public Safety in Pakistan
News | September 26, 2013
Writing for The News International, EWI Board Member Ikram Sehgal implores Pakistanis to create a legally founded Public Safety Commission (PSC) to protect citizens against misused government power.
"There must be a legal basis for ensuring the safety and security of the citizens of the country because of the specially-crafted laws that give the LEAs draconian powers,” Seghal writes. “To prevent superior courts being clogged with cases of human rights abuse, it is imperative to have a duly legislated ‘overnight mechanism’ in the form of a PSC."
