Political asylumEdit

The British government granted political asylum to Baloch leader Nawabzada Hyrbyair Marri.[1]


Marri returned to Pakistan in 1992. His father was too old to start a new political struggle so his brother Balach Marri took his father's place. In 1996, Hyrbyair Marri was elected to Balochistan assembly and was appointed Education Minister of the province. In 1998, Balochistan Police accused his family of murdering judge Nawaz Marri. He escaped from Pakistan to Dubai and then to Britain.
