The National Assembly yesterday reflected on the achievements of former parliamentarian Abdul Kadir, who died in a United States prison after being convicted of terrorism-related offences.
A motion, which sought to offer sympathy to Kadir’s sorrowing widow, children and relatives, was passed unopposed. The opposition PPP/C was not present in the House as it boycotted the sitting.
Kadir, who died on June 28th, 2018, served in the Eighth Parliament, from April 17th, 2001 to May 2nd, 2006 as a parliamentarian for the then opposition PNC/R. At the time of his death at age 66, Kadir was serving a life sentence for plotting to blow up fuel tanks at the John F Kennedy Airport in New York…..
