Illegal Detentions: Saud Memon


Saud Memon owned the property where the remains of Daniel Pearl, the murdered Wall Street Journal correspondent were found in 2002. According to Memon's family, he left for South Africa after this discovery in Ahsanabad, Gadap Town. He was apprehensive of his likely arrest in this high-profile murder case. The FBI arrested him from South Africa on March 7, 2003, kept him at Guantanamo Bay for more than two years and then handed him over to the Pakistani authorities in 2006, according to the family. Memon returned home on April 28, 2007 in a state of extreme emaciation. He was presented to the Supreme Court Bench on May 14 in the forced disappearances case. He was unable to speak as a result of alleged torture and died of 'tuberculosis and meningitis' on May 18, 2007. More
