40 young Pakistanis Stuck Off In Yemen Sea, Becoming Mental Patients:

ISLAMABAD: The renowned human and civil rights lawyer Ansar Burney has urged upon Pakistan’s President General Parvez Musharraf and Prime Minister Jamali to repatriate and save the lives of 40 young Pakistanis who were cheated by agents in Pakistan and are stuck off at Aden Sea Port in Yemen, where they are hungry and now becoming mental patients.

In a letter to President and Prime Minister respectively, Mr Burney informed that he would like to bring into Your Excellency’s kind notice that 40 young innocent Pakistanis are stuck off at the Sea port of Aden in Yemen, where they are going to die if no help will provided to them. The Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International is trying it best to save their lives and bring them back to Pakistan.

Chairman, Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International, Ansar Burney said that these 40 Pakistanis are starving, drinking rusty water and have no medical facilities on two dead Ships at Aden port in Yemen. Due to these pathetic conditions one of these Pakistanis tried to kill himself and now he has become mental patient. Some of them jumped in to the sea to reach ashore for assistance and food.

”These Pakistanis paid a huge amount of money to agents in Pakistan for arranging their jobs on a ship”, Burney informed.

”A few months ago when they went to Yemen and joined the ship, the owner of the ship did not pay any single penny to these Pakistani youngsters due to that, they are facing pathetic and crucial time on the port of Aden”, Letter said.

These Pakistanis are on M.V Yaseen (Sheza) M.V.Buchear, M.V. Adem and allegedly booked by Pakistan’s Global shipping agency Great Easter, Ocean ship management and seaways.

”The responsible of the shipping agencies that booked these young Pakistanis for Yemen (Aden) are already apprehended by the F.I.A at Karachi but nothing has so far being done to bring back/repatriation of these 40 innocent Pakistanis from Aden port”. Letter informed.

”The ‘Ansar Burney Welfare Trust International’ will highly appreciate if President Musharraf and Prime Minister Jamali could do something to save the lives of dozens of young Pakistanis and ask the concern Ministry for the repatriation of these innocent Pakistanis on urgent basis”, Ansar Burney added.
