Pakistan's A.Q. Khan a "Free Citizen"

E-mail Print PDF

A Pakistani court on Friday ordered the government to lift any remaining restrictions on a scientist alleged to have spread nuclear technology to Iran, North Korea and Libya, his lawyer said.

Khan was detained in December 2003 and admitted on television in early 2004 sole responsibility for operating a network that spread nuclear weapons technology to Iran, North Korea and Libya. He has since repeatedly retracted that statement.

He was pardoned by then President Pervez Musharraf, but immediately placed under de facto house arrest.
