Islamabad: Pakistani journalist files complaint against CIA
ISLAMABAD: Kareem Khan, a journalist and a resident of North Waziristan, filed an application with Islamabad police against CIA station chief Jonathan Bank at the US embassy in Islamabad on Monday.
This is the very first time that such a case has been filed against a CIA official for illegal use of drones inside Pakistan.
Relatives of Kareem Khan were killed in an unsanctioned US drone attack in North Waziristan in 2009.
“That drone attack killed my son, my brother and a local man. We are not terrorists, we are common citizens,” Khan told a news conference in Islamabad.
Kareem Khan and his lawyer Shehzad Akbar have submitted the application in police station against CIA local chief Jonathan Bank, leveling the allegations of attempt to murder and involvement in terrorism, the police sources said.
