  • FBA Statement on Bombing in Pakistan

    The vicious terrorist bombing on August 8 that killed scores of Pakistani lawyers outside a hospital in Quetta, Pakistan is not just an attack on the people of Pakistan. It represents an attack on all of humanity and our common respect for the rule of law throughout the world.

    News reports indicate that the lawyers had gathered to mourn a colleague whom militants had shot dead earlier in the day and whose body had been taken to the hospital. The bombing follows the recent terrorist killings of other lawyers in Pakistan in a cruel attempt to create chaos, undermine public order, and eliminate a generation of respected servants of the law.

    We stand with our Pakistani brethren in the law in their hour of grief. Lawyers and judges are critical to the preservation of freedom and a just society.
