UPDATE to the blogpost HRCP urges PM’s action over Pakistani women detained in Afghanistan, China:
We have received information that Ms. Zalkaf Begum, who had been in detention in China for three months after losing her passport and overstaying her visa duration and who remained still in prison after an emergency passport was issued to her because she was unable to pay for her return to Pakistan, has been deported back to Pakistan by the Chinese Authorities.
The costs of air ticket and miscellaneous having been borne by the Chinese Authorities and not the Pakistan government. The Pakistani consulate had declared that it had no funds for the air ticket.
According to the information, Zalkaf Begum has requested a low profile and does not wish the issue to be ‘exaggerated’ so that her privacy, and that of her family, may be protected.
