Marco Rubio seeks answers as eight charged in Malala shooting go free

Sep 29, 2015 | News

Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio is demanding answers after a Pakistani court quietly freed eight of the 10 men charged with coordinating the shooting of schoolgirl and Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai.
Rubio, a senator from Florida, joined forces with California senator Barbara Boxer, a Democrat, in a letter to the US ambassador to Pakistan seeking “an honest and transparent account” of why the attackers were released.
The senators wrote that they were “alarmed” by reports that eight of the men found responsible for carrying out the 2012 attack, in which Yousafzai was shot in the head while traveling home from school in Swat valley, were acquitted despite being sentenced to 25 years in prison in April. Their trial was held behind closed doors and raised further questions about the Pakistani judicial system, all too often regarded as broken and criticized for its lack of accountability.
“These reports raise significant concerns about the transparency and the accountability of the Pakistani judicial system,” Rubio and Boxer wrote. “As such, we respectfully request that the Pakistani judicial system provide an honest and transparent accounting of the events surrounding the cases against these ten individuals and continue its important work to bring all those responsible for the brutal attack against an innocent teenage girl to justice.”
