Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, has directed that lacunas in the anti terrorism laws must be removed to ensure that culprits involved in heinous terrorist activities are fairly punished.

The Prime Minister said this while chairing a meeting on Anti-Terrorism Legislation at PM’s House this afternoon. 

“There should be no gap and loophole in the anti terrorism laws which allow the terrorists to get away with dreadful crimes. We need strong, transparent but stringent laws to cope with the menace of terrorism. The required amendments must be finalized as soon as possible”, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister underlined the need of amending the existing laws so that people involved in brutal and inhuman activities are bought to book and penalized under the laws of the land. 

The meeting was also attended by Ch. Nisar Ali Khan, Minister for Interior, Mr. Parvez Rasheed, Minister for Information, Broadcasting & National Heritage, Mr. Zahid Hamid, Minister for Science & Technology and senior officials of the PM’s office.

Meanwhile talking to British Senior Minister of State at Foreign & Commonwealth Office Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, he said Pakistan considers United Kingdom a close friend and a genuine development partner.

The Prime Minister lauded the role played by Baroness Warsi for her efforts towards Muslim causes and her initiatives of strengthening the link of Pakistani diaspora in the UK.

Highlighting the importance of Pakistan – UK relations, the Prime Minister said that visit of the British Prime Minister David Cameron as the first head of government after the general elections, is a testimony to the special relationship and there exists a coordinated approach to various bilateral, regional and international issues.

Baroness Warsi apprised the Prime Minister regarding progress made on Pakistan – UK Enhanced Strategic Dialogue, Trade Investment Roadmap and support provided by UK Department for International Development (DFID) for various projects in Pakistan.
