Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani today said the case of US official Raymond Davis could be resolved only by the courts or relatives of the dead men, while admitting that his government was facing “difficult decisions” on the issue.
The government has made it very clear that it would accept any decision by the courts or the heirs of the dead men on the issue of US national Raymond Davis, Gilani said while addressing the National Seerat Conference, a gathering of clerics and religious scholars.
“The matter can be resolved if the relatives (of the dead men) grant a pardon or the court decides. We have no role in the matter,” Gilani said.
Davis’ case was before the courts, which would decide the matter after evaluating evidence on whether he has diplomatic immunity, he said.
