US blacklists Rao Anwaar for serious human rights abuse
WASHINGTON (92 News) – The United States has blacklisted 18 people, including Malir former SSP Rao Anwaar, on the charge of serious human rights abuse in different countries.
According to a press release issued by the US Department of Treasury on Tuesday, Rao Anwaar Khan, during his tenure as the Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) in Malir, was reportedly responsible for staging numerous fake police encounters in which individuals were killed by police, and was involved in over 190 police encounters that resulted in the deaths of over 400 people, including the murder of Naqeebullah Mehsud.
Anwaar helped to lead a network of police and criminal thugs that were allegedly responsible for extortion, land grabbing, narcotics, and murder. Anwaar is designated for being responsible for or complicit in, or having directly or indirectly engaged in, serious human rights abuse.
“On International Human Rights Day, the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has taken action against 18 individuals located in Burma, Pakistan, Libya, Slovakia, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and South Sudan for their roles in serious human rights abuse. Additionally, six entities have been designated for being owned or controlled by one of the aforementioned individuals. OFAC designated these individuals and entities pursuant to Executive Order (EO) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act and targets perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption.
“The United States will not tolerate torture, kidnapping, sexual violence, murder, or brutality against innocent civilians. America is the world leader in combating human rights abuse and we will hold perpetrators and enablers accountable wherever they operate,” the release said.
