President Azad Jammu and Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhry has asked the recently formed Defense Committee to redouble its efforts to secure an early release of Yasin Malik who was convicted after a fabricated trial by an Indian court.
Addressing the members of the Defense Committee in London, he said the unjust sentence awarded to Yasin Malik is in blatant violation of norms of justice.
On this occasion, the Defense Committee assured the President that the committee has started its work by obtaining all the necessary documents in this regard.
Later, the President addressed a public meeting in Slavo, wherein he spoke at length about his visit to the UK, Ireland, and Belgium.
He said the main purpose of his visit is to awaken the world’s conscience regarding the fast deteriorating political and human rights situation in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
