Public Complaints: Ambassador, 6 officers of Pakistan Embassy called back from SA

News Desk:

Pakistan has called back its ambassador and six officers from Riyadh Saudi Arabia over public complaints. The Pakistani community had lodged complaints against the officials in the Kingdom.

The statement said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had ordered an inquiry and his directions were being implemented.

“A high-powered inquiry committee will look into the matter,” it added. The six officers who were issued recall orders worked in the diplomatic, community welfare, and consular wings of the embassy, according to the FO.

“The government of Pakistan attaches high importance to the welfare of overseas Pakistanis. There is zero tolerance, whatsoever, for any lapse in public service delivery,” the statement said, adding that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi himself oversaw the working of all diplomatic missions, particularly with regards to the services being provided to the Pakistani community.

“Pakistan’s missions, all across the world, have standing instructions to extend maximum facilitation to the Pakistani community in their respective jurisdictions.”

Earlier today, Prime Minister Imran said he had heard that the Pakistani embassy in Saudi Arabia did “not take care of the labor class” working in the Gulf country.

Addressing a ceremony in Islamabad in connection with the government’s Roshan Digital Account initiative, the prime minister lamented that Pakistani embassies did not “appreciate” the labor class.
