The meeting was hosted by the interior ministry in pursuance of their previous sitting, held in January 2022, when the committee had decided to share a draft agreement with the British government for consultation.
The agreement, it was decided, would allow repatriation of the citizens, who had been sentenced by the courts, and all the opportunities for filing these appeals would be met. The agreement would be applied to those convicted, residing illegally in Pakistan or in the UK.
It was agreed upon by all members that, after consultation with the UK, the Return and Readmission Agreement would be submitted to the Federal Cabinet for final approval.
