Pakistan: Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali - July 2013 Summary

The Law Society of Upper Canada voices its concern over the death of Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali. When serious issues of apparent injustice to lawyers and the judiciary come to our attention, we speak out.

 Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali was chief prosecutor and former deputy director of the Federal Investigation Agency. He was gunned down by unidentified assailants on May 3, 2013, near his home in Islamabad. Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali had a reputation for determinedly pursuing cases against suspects with powerful and sometimes militant connections, despite receiving repeated death threats for his involvement in this work.
