Former Qaeda suspects will be deported on 27th
PESHAWAR: Two Tanzanian nationals will be deported to their country after a three-year prison term on suspicion of having links to the Al Qaeda network, a Red Cross spokesman said on Friday.
Twenty-seven-years-old Moso Muhammad and 28-years-old Yalha Talyan were arrested by security agencies from a Peshawar hotel for suspected links to Osama bin Laden’s terror network. “They will be deported on April 27 ,” the spokesman told Daily Times.
A former Pakistani lawmaker had challenged their detention in the Peshawar High Court and had subsequently won the case. “I am glad the court has ordered their deportation and they must be glad to reunite with their families,” Javed Ibrahim Paracha, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader, told Daily Times.
The two Tanzanians couldn’t be deported earlier because they had no money for air tickets or travel documents. “Their families sent their travel documents through Red Cross messaging,” the spokesman explained.
