Pakistan says it will contest two US lawsuits that link its spy chief and his agency to the deadly 2008 attacks in Mumbai.
The Foreign Ministry’s statement on Thursday shows how sensitive Islamabad is to allegations that its intelligence services were involved in the assault that killed 166 people in archrival India. The ministry said Pakistan will “fully and properly” defend spy chief General Ahmed Shuja Pasha against the accusations.
Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has already Pasha cannot be made to testify in the New York civil lawsuits. He wants the cases dismissed.
The plaintiffs include relatives of the attack’s victims. They seek financial damages. Experts say such cases rarely succeed beyond being symbolic. Many international defendants claim immunity or don’t bother to respond.
