The Embassy of Pakistan in Bahrain has successfully secured the release of 82 Pakistani prisoners, under a Royal Pardon granted by King Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa on the happy occasion of Eid ul Fitr. The release of large number of Pakistanis was the result of efforts of Ambassador Javed Malik, who personally visited the Pakistani inmates in May 2016 and took up the matter with the relevant authorities in Bahrain, a Foreign Office statement said. The Pakistanis, who have been released, will soon be united with their families as efforts are now underway to repatriate them back to Pakistan.
