FCR Black Law
The government should cancel or to amend the frontier crimes regulations (FCR) black law and let the tribes take part in national development. Under FCR an innocent person could be sentenced to 50 years imprisonment without any trial, which was unfair and in violation of human rights. Now more then a century later, this system is still in place, and in the eyes of some has been quite successful. While under the control and jurisdiction of the central government, each pashtun tribe has its own representative spokesman and each tribe is ensured of its own autonomy. But the truth is that very few locals see it that way. ----------------Riven with poverty, ignorance and devoid largely of even the basic infrastructure, the FATA region is run by seven PA s - who are armed with two tools of influence : a set of law called Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) and the authority and ability to to align certain tribal elders by rewarding them with leadership status, known as Malik. The FCR allows the PA to imprison or impose penalties worth thousands of dollars on anybody he thinks has violated the law or endangered the peace of the region.
