"He has not seen any charging papers. Russia should send a request and find out what the charges were. They are just biased against the foreigners, you see. My son is absolutely not guilty," said Svetlana Akhlaq.
She said that her son was libelled, adding that the Pakistanis abducted him and kept him in custody on completely concocted charges.
Previously, the Russian consul in Pakistan told RIA Novosti, citing Akhlas Akhlaq’s lawyer, that the execution was postponed until Akhlaq’s mother arrival scheduled for Monday.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Pakistan considers the charges brought against Russian citizen Akhlas Akhlaq, executed Sunday for an attempt to assassinate the country's former president, to be reasonable, a source close to the ministry told RIA Novosti.
"The Foreign Ministry of Pakistan believes the charges against Akhlas Akhlaq are reasonable, and not far-fetched," the source said.
On Wednesday, Pakistan lifted the moratorium on death penalty for terrorism-related crimes following the December 16 massacre in a Peshawar school, in which the Taliban killed 145 people, vast majority of them children.
