UK asks Pakistan to prosecute Mumbai attackers

Friday, January 16, 2009

ISLAMABAD: British Foreign Secretary David Miliband on Friday urged Pakistan to go “farther and faster” while prosecuting and punishing people involved in the Mumbai attacks and to ensure that the terrorist infrastructure was uprooted.Addressing a press conference here, after his separate meetings with President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Miliband suggested that first Pakistan should prosecute these people whom they had detained and then completely “put out of business these terrorist infrastructures”.He made it very clear that he was not advocating this for New Delhi, rather British citizens had been killed in Mumbai and these were the views of his government.“It is vital that the detentions are turned into prosecution with charges, and if found guilty, for the persons to be punished,” he said.
