Christian Juhl, Member of Parliament in Denmark, supports the campaign to free Baba Jan

June 11, 2012

Here is a copy of the letter that Christian Juhl sent to various Pakistani authorities.

Dear sir,

Five political activists are being tortured in Gilgit jail, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan. These political activists who were in jail for the last many months are facing very harsh treatment for protesting against the poor quality of food and delay in hearing of cases of prisoners at the jail. They have been incarcerated for protesting on behalf of the victims of forced displacement on account of the Attaabad landslide in January 2010.

On April 28, 2012 five political activists were visited by police and security agencies in jail and they were tortured on dubious charges of leading the protest in prison. One of the activists’ Baba Jan suffered two broken fingers and injuries to his head and other parts of his body. Despite the orders of the court Baba Jan and other victims have not been examined by doctor and not been hospitalized in violation of court orders

We express our concern on the torture of political activists in Gilgir prison

We demand that a judicial inquiry of this incident should be held

We demand that they must not be tortured.

We urge that they are dealt with according to law.

We urge that they should immediately be shifted to hospital and provided all kinds of medical facilities.

We demand that their families should be allowed to meet them

We demand that they should be allowed to meet lawyers of their choice

We demand that those responsible for torture must be prosecuted

Please, let me hear what is happening.

Christian Juhl

Member of Parliament
