Farooq Tariq of Labor Party Arrested

General Secretary Labour Party Pakistan , comrade Farooq Tariq was arrested from his Lahore office by a heavy contingent of Punjab Police at 1:30 p.m on Friday. He has been taken to garhi shahu police station, Lahore where he would be detained. It may be mentioned that Farooq Tariq and Labour Party Pakistan has been in the forefront in the on-going movement for restoration of chief justice of Pakistan , Iftekhar Mohammed Chaudhry. Farooq Tariq is among the leading activists organizing tomorrow’s reception in the honour of chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad choudhry.

Farooq Tariq was a bit aware about his possible arrest as a news item has already been published about a list of persons may be arrested in daily jang. When he contacted the police station about the mention of his name in list of persons who might be arrested, the police officers denied this news item. So Farooq was relaxed and was doing his work as usual at party office. But suddenly a police van reached at 1.30 pm before his office and men in uniform rushed to his office to arrest him.

Labour Party Pakistan thinks the purpose of the arrest is to stop LPP from exercising its democratic right to protest. We condemn his illegal arrest and demands immediate release. LPP tomorrow’s scheduled reception for chief justice Pakistan will be held at district courts according to the program.
