‘Govt preparing proposals to review death penalty’

 Naik meets Sarabjeet, says President Zardari can decide Indian prisoner’s fate

LAHORE: Federal Law Minister Farooq H Naik visited the Kot Lakhpat Jail on Monday and met with condemned Indian prisoner Sarabjeet Singh, who is facing the death penalty for committing acts of terrorism in Pakistan.
The federal law minister sought information regarding the death penalty of the accused from the jail authorities.
Later, he told the media that he had visited the jail on the directions of President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in order to review the jail facilities being provided to prisoners.
The Law Ministry was preparing its recommendations for enacting a law to review the death penalty, he said, adding the recommendations after its approval by the federal cabinet would be sent to parliament for discussion.
He said India had given Islamabad a list of over 100 Pakistani prisoners who were in its jails, and urged Indian authorities to repatriate them on humanitarian grounds.
In reply to another question on whether Sarabjeet should be freed at a time when Pakistan has been hit by a wave of bomb attacks, Naik said: “Bomb attacks have their own place and humanitarian considerations have their own place.”
Asked if Sarabjeet would be released if India freed the Pakistani prisoners, Naik replied: “I don’t have these powers. I can only study (Sarabjeet’s) case and submit a recommendation and a report on humanitarian grounds. The final decision will be made by the prime minister and the president.”
