Death, life term for biological arms offenders proposed

"The Foreign Office has asked the federal government to enact a law awarding death penalty for those who would use or attempt to use biological weapons in Pakistan or outside, and life imprisonment for those offenders who develop, manufacture, import, export, acquire, possess control or retain a biological weapon inside the country's territories.

The offenders under this new proposed law, to be taken by the federal cabinet Wednesday (today), would be tried in a sessions court only upon a complaint in writing made by an officer authorized by the federal government.

The provisions of CCPr 1898 shall be applicable for the purpose of trial and other proceedings. The new law is being introduced to meet the international obligations.
