Pakistan News: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said that the courts would decide whether a Raymond Davis who shot dead two Pakistanis was protected by diplomatic immunity.
Raymond Davis has been adamant he acted in self-defence, when he killed the two men in Lahore on January 27. A third Pakistani died when he was struck by a US diplomatic vehicle that came to Davis’ support.
“Davis also has a lawyer, he will present his case and then the court will decide whether he has immunity or not,” the Associated Press of Pakistan quoted Gilani as telling a meeting of religious scholars.
Gilani advise the religious scholars to find a solution to the sensitive issue in conflict with Islamic law, under which a victim’s family can pardon a killer in return for compensation.
