Dr. Shakil Afridi, the doctor who helped setup a fake vaccination scheme so the CIA could hunt down and execute terrorist leader Osama bin Laden is currently being held by Pakistani officials and may soon face his own death sentence.
According to reports the doctor is charged with high treason and is being held without access to a lawyer. According to the Guardian allegations have been surfacing that the doctor has also been tortured by Pakistan officials.
In the meantime the doctors arrest is worsening tensions between Pakistan and U.S. Officials with American officers calling Afridi a hero while urging Pakistan officials to release him into US custody so him and his family can settle down to a better life in the United States.
The Pakistani commission only recommended charges against the doctor when the chief of the ISI was interviewed and felt humiliated by the covert American raid.
In the meantime the terrorist friendly nation has recently released restrictions on three of bin Laden’s widows and two daughters who were being held in custody since the Obama compound raid. Obama’s family are said to be returning into Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
Do you feel that Pakistan’s stance is going to further the divide between their country, the United States and the rest of the world?
