Pakistan Lawmaker Questions Davis Deal

"The Pakistani people feel betrayed by their government simply because the government could not protect the victims' families. And it seems that they have been pressured into this deal," Marvi Memon told Press TV's U.S. Desk on Wednesday.

Raymond Davis, the double murder-accused CIA contractor, was released on Wednesday after the families of the two victims agreed to drop charges against him in exchange for financial compensation.

A lawyer for the families of the two Pakistani men killed by the American CIA contractor says the United States paid $2.34 million in "blood money" to secure the man's release. AP

"There is an Islamic law which allows for these deals to happen except there is now an impression by [U.S.] Secretary of State [Hillary] Clinton as to who has paid this money? If the Americans haven't paid this money then who has paid it?" Memon said.

"So there are many questions now around this subject and the mood has been very anti-American since the very begging of this dire crisis," she added.

"I, myself, led a protest sometime back over the speculations that at some point there would be immunity [granted to Davis] and problems which were being discussed," the Pakistan Muslim League-Q lawmaker told Press TV's U.S. Desk.

"The deal [comes after] the Pakistani government came under pressure and the people of Pakistan do not appreciate it," she said.

"And there is no price for there should be no price [tag] on Pakistani blood."

"There are a lot of questions about this deal and we in the parliament would be asking the government … because we want to truth to come out."

"Those questions include why the court has excused the spying charges that had been brought against [Davis]."
