Incorrect Media Reports linking Omer Shahab with Foreign Office

A section of Media, both print and online editions, has reported that Mr. Omer Shahab, an accused allegedly involved in the smuggling of children’s organs to India has served in Pakistan Embassy in Kuwait and is an official of this Ministry.

The reports are completely incorrect and are rejected out-rightly. It may be noted that the alleged person never served in Pakistan Embassy in Kuwait and is not an official of this Ministry.

It is absolutely irresponsible on the part of those dailies and online media to publish stories without verifying the information.

All those dailies and the online editions, which identified the accused person, Mr. Omer Shahab, as a Foreign Office official and him having served in Pakistan’s Mission in Kuwait are advised to issue rectification in their respective newspapers and online editions, forthwith.
