Pakistani Senate Moves to Shield Khan

The Pakistani Senate last week approved a resolution opposing demands by U.S. lawmakers that Islamabad grant international investigators access to former top nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan, the Irish Times reported Saturday (see GSN, June 8).

The Senate resolution calls the U.S. request a “blatant violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and integrity and interference” in the country’s business.

CIA and International Atomic Energy Agency officials have long sought access to Khan regarding his black market sales of nuclear technology, but Islamabad has insisted that all interviews be conducted by Pakistani intelligence.

Meanwhile, security around Khan’s home in Islamabad, where he remains under house arrest, has been tightened, according to the Times (Rahul Bedi, Irish Times, June 10).
