The idenitity of the prisoner has been established as Anwar Ali-Zehi, who was sentenced to death on drug-related charges. According to an informed source of the Baluch Activists Campaign, “Anwar was forced to transfer drugs due to being unable to find a suitable job and poor living conditions and did not even have a criminal record prior to his arrest.” Anwar was arrested two years ago and had been kept behind bars during that time.
