The Chairman of Ansar Burney Trust International and former federal minister for human rights, Ansar Burney, said that 20 Pakistani nationals were trafficked for ‘modern day slavery’ by cruel agents in Pakistan to Somalia, via Dubai, about one month ago by way of cheating and fraud as they were promised by the agent to be taken to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for the good job of fishermen but conversely they were taken to Somaliland, Somalia.

Ansar Burney said one of such Pakistani namely Feroz Bhatti, a resident of Baba Bhit, Manora in Karachi, somehow from Berbera, Somaliland, managed to contact with Ansar Burney Trust International at Karachi office by phone and informed that he along with 19 other Pakistanis have been compelled to live a worst miserable life in Somaliland.

He requested Shagufta Burney, Advocate Director of Ansar Burney Trust to help them out from this miserable condition as their lives are in continuous danger and requested to make efforts to bring them back to Pakistan to reunite them with their families.

Ansar Burney said the names of 20 Pakistanis are Kader, Feroz, Adam, Jaffer, Younus, Akber, Ghafoor, Abdullah, Umar, Jameel, Bashir, Manzoor, Yar Mohammad, Mohammad Khalil, Ramzan, Ghulam Hyder, Maula Bux, Ali Hussain, Gul Mohammad and Abdullah Bhatti.

He said the Trust has made immediate contact and appealed to President Mamnoon Hussain, the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Islamabad and other higher authorities in Pakistan and in Africa, to help Ansar Burney Trust in saving the lives and repatriation of these miserable people.

Ansar Burney will establish the required Pakistani citizenship of trafficked Pakistanis in Somalia and requested families of 20 Pakistanis in this regard to immediately contact Ansar Burney Trust International in Karachi for help.
