London: Baloch Republican Party UK chapter held a demonstration protest outside the Switzerland embassy in london here on Saturday.
The objective of the demonstration was to protest the unjust decision of the Switzerland authorities of turning down the political asylum application of Top Baloch leader and chief of BRP, Nawab Brahumdagh Bugti.
Mansoor Baloch, the President of the party’s UK Chapter, has said that Switzerland should review its decision, and it should not overlook its code of neutrality, human rights laws and the western traditions.
He further said “It has saddened the Baloch nation how Switzerland denied asylum to the Baloch leader, Nawab Bugti, relying upon the false and baseless allegations and propaganda of Pakistani authorities. Switzerland is well known for its neutrality when it comes to issues such as this, and we respect that: But, by denying political asylum to such a well known and great leader and only listening to the Pakistani side of the story and avoiding to hear us puts Swiss’s claims of neutrality into question.”
He added that Baloch nation is faced with a systematic genocide at the hands of Pakistani state & denying asylum to Nawab Bugti, who happens to be the most influential voice against the Baloch Genocide, by Switzerland adds greatly to the state atrocities in Balochistan: escalation of Military operations across Balochistan including Dera Bugti, Makuran and Awaran are a good example of that.
Mansoor said that activists of Baloch National Movement and son of Baloch leader Mir Javed Mengal had also joined the protest demonstration.
