Farooq Tariq detained for 3 months, sent to Bahawalpur Jail

Lahore: General Secretary Labour Party Pakistan Farooq Tariq who was
arrested on 5 June from his residence without warrants, Thursday (June
7) sent to Bahawalpur Jail after the issunace of 3-month detention
orders by the home secretary Punjab.

Farooq Tariq's detention is a part of recent state crack down on political activists and workers in the
backdrop of lawyers and mediamen movement against Mushrraf regime.

Throughout the country hundreds of political workers have been
arrested and cases have been lodged on thousands others. According to
the police reply submitted before the court, Farooq has been arrested
under section 16 of Maintinance of Public Order.

Meanwhile, the jail authorities in Bahawalpur have refused to allow
visitors to see Farooq Tariq as party members and workers wanted to see
him. It may be mentioned that Bawalpur is 8-hour travel from Lahore and
the purpose of shifting him to Bahawalpur is based on malafidie and to
stop visitors to see him. According to authorities meetnig with Farooq
can only be arranged after a written permission from the home secretary,
which is sheer violation of constitutionl and fundamental rights.

Labour Party Pakistan condemns jail authorities attitude and demands to
allow visitors to see Farooq Tariq in Jail. In the background of the
situation, along with countrywide protests it has also been decided to
challenge Farooq Tariq detention in the Lahore High Court.
