Switzerland rejected on Wednesday the request of exiled leader of the banned Baloch Republican Party (BRP) Brahumdagh Bugti to seek political asylum after more than seven years, a government source confirmed, just a week after imposing lifetime entry ban on exiled Baloch leader and Bugti's brother-in-law, Mehran Marri, according to Aaj News.
Brahumdagh Bugti's asylum application was turned down because of his links with "incidents of terrorism, violence and militant activities" and the rejection letter clearly sets out these allegations. Bugti confirmed that his asylum application has been rejected by the Swiss government on the basis of allegations that he has links with the banned Baloch Republican Army (BRA). He said that he had the right to appeal.
