Pakistan Govt Begins Probing of It`s National Killed in Kenya
Pakistan Government on Wednesday 26th Began an investigation over their National Journalist Arshad Sharif who was killed in Kenya by Kenyan Police on Sunday 23rd October.
According to Pakistani Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, he ordered on Tuesday 25th the formation of a commission to investigate the murder of Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif.
“I have decided that we will form a high-level judicial commission to investigate the matter, and will put in a request for an Islamabad High Court judge for this,” the Prime Minister stated.
This comes barely a day after the Kenyan government planned the repatriation of the Sharif’s remains to Pakistani.
This came after President William Ruto and the leader of Pakistan agreed over the phone to hasten the journalist's funeral in accordance with Islamic customs.
The Pakistani government also asked Kenya to launch reliable investigations.
On Sunday, October 23, the well-known Pakistani journalist was shot after police allegedly opened fire on the car he was allegedly pursuing.
Notably, new information showed on Tuesday, October 25, that the automobile reportedly taken was a white Mercedes and not the Toyota Landcruiser that the police were pursuing.
The acclaimed investigative journalist Sharif was in Kenya filming a feature article.
He apparently left his nation in August 2022 for safety reasons and was now residing in Kenya.
In light of an increase in extrajudicial executions, the Independent Police Oversight Authority (IPOA) pledged to looking into the matter.
