The decision in this regard was taken by the Interior Ministry, a week after high-level talks with the European Union to settle a dispute over forced repatriations.

“On the interior minister’s orders, the FIA has not allowed these illegally deported people and the aircraft crew to leave the plane,” the ministry said in a statement, referring to the Federal Investigation Agency.

The ministry said the 30 were “unverified deportees” who had arrived in Islamabad on a charter flight from Greece.
