Swiss government rejects Brahumdagh Bugti’s request for asylum Swiss government rejects Brahumdagh Bugti’s request for asylum

Switzerland government has rejected  the banned Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahumdagh Bugti to seek political asylum.

Swiss government has taken the decision after more than seven years.

Swiss decision came up following a week imposing lifetime entry ban on prominent exiled Baloch leader and Bugti’s brother-in-law, Mehran Marri.

A source in the Swiss government confirmed that Brahumdagh Bugti’s asylum application was turned down because of his links with “incidents of terrorism, violence and militant activities” and the rejection letter clearly sets out these allegations.

Bugti confirmed to this correspondent that his asylum application has been rejected by the Swiss government on the basis of allegations that he has links with the banned Baloch Republican Army (BRA).

He said that he had the right to appeal and he will take his case to the next level of Swiss judiciary and to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), if needed.

“These are the same old allegations that I have always denied, of being involved in militancy,” he said.

Bugti had applied for asylum in Swiss in November 2010 claiming that his life was at risk. He had been living in Afghanistan prior to leaving the country for a Middle Eastern state and from there he flew to Geneva.
