August 29, 2006
Peshawar: British government after requesting for extradition of the main suspect in the transatlantic flight bombing plot, has expedited the process to sign an extradition treaty with Pakistan government to shift 26 years old Rashid Rauf to UK for further investigation.
British Government has been negotiating with Pakistani authorities to sign extradition treaty for exchange of criminal between the two countries.
We expect Pakistan government would formalize the treaty within short time to speed up the process of justice and investigation in flight bombing plot said Aidan Liddle, head of Press and Public Affairs of the British High Commission.
He said the Pakistan government contribution in foiling the conspiracy was extremely important revealing the main accused in -- Rashid Rauf was also charged in UK for murdering his uncle in 2002.
We want him investigate in the case under the British Laws Mr Aidan said.
The British official said it was now up to Pakistan government that how much time it will take to sign extradition treaty with British for exchange of the wanted persons, like Rashid Rauf in Plan conspiracy case.
