We are aware of the reported abduction of Amar Fayaz in Sindh, Pakistan. The UK Government strongly condemns any instances of enforced disappearances. We urge states to fully investigate any allegations, prosecute those responsible and provide justice to victims and their families. We regularly raise at a senior level our concerns about the human rights situation with the Government of Pakistan. Most recently, the Minister of State for South Asia and Minister for Human Rights, Lord (Tariq) Ahmad of Wimbledon, raised our concerns about human rights with Pakistan's Human Rights Minister, Dr Shireen Mazari, on 16 November.
