June 26, 2014

KARACHI: The Ansar Burney Trust International that is endeavouring hard to save the lives and bring back 20 Pakistanis trafficked for slavery and presently stuck at Berbera Port in Somaliland has thanked Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Islamabad, for their kind assistance to bring them back home soon.
Trust’s Chairman Ansar Burney said that 20 Pakistani nationals were trafficked to Somalia via Dubai for ‘modern day slavery’ by cruel agents in Pakistan about a month ago by way of cheating and fraud, as they were promised by the agent to be taken to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, for the job of fishermen but conversely, they were taken to Somaliland, Somalia.
Burney said one of such Pakistani namely Feroz Bhatti, a resident of Baba Bhit, Manora in Karachi, somehow managed to contact the Trust’s Karachi office by phone from Berbera, Somaliland and informed that he along with 19 other Pakistanis had been compelled to live a miserable life in Somaliland.
He requested Shagufta Burney, Advocate Director of Ansar Burney Trust, to help them out of this condition as their lives were in continuous danger. He also 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, Jafer, Younus, Akber, Ghafoor, Abdullah, Umar, Jamel, Bashir, Manzoor, Yar Mohammad, Mohammad Khalil, Ramzan, Ghulam Hyder, Maula Bux, Ali Hussain, Gul Mohammad and Abdullah Bhatti.
He said the Trust had made immediate contact and appealed to President Mamnoon Hussain, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Islamabad, and other higher authorities in Pakistan and Africa, to help the Ansar Burney Trust to save the lives and repatriation of these miserable people.
Ansar Burney, to establish the required Pakistani citizenship of trafficked Pakistanis in Somalia, requested families of the 20 Pakistanis to immediately contact Ansar Burney Trust International, 6 - Hassan Manzil,

Arambagh Road, Karachi or by Phone: (021) 32623382.
