Restore Rule of Law in Pakistan

Last month, President Pervez Musharaf declared a "State of Emergency" in Pakistan and suspended much of the Constitution. Within hours, authorities arrested hundreds of lawyers, human rights activists, and other perceived opponents of President Pervez Musharaf's government under provisions allowing detention without charge or trial.

Amnesty International calls on authorities in Pakistan to release and reinstate Supreme Court members and other judiciary members.
