Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday has directed FIA to prepare a new policy framework about immigration to avoid issuance of visa to a blacklisted foreigner.
The preliminary investigation report about this incident was presented to the Interior Minster.
According to the report, a visa officer of Pakistani embassy deputed in Houston, who issued the visa to Mathew Barret and the FIA official who committed negligence and allowed the American blacklisted national to enter Islamabad, were held responsible for the incident.
Meanwhile, the interior ministry spokesperson said it is premature and inappropriate to call the arrested Mathew Barrett a spy.
He said that, the reasons for which Mathew Barrett was blacklisted in 2011 did not include espionage provision. -RadioPakistan
