The “disappeared”

Says Peter Tatchell on CiF:

As he continues to cling to power, Pervez Musharraf presides over a regime in Pakistan that routinely engages in kidnapping, detention without trial, torture and extra-judicial killings, according to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.

He then outlines the disgraceful case of human rights activist Dr Safdar Sarki, a victim of “forced disappearance” by the government. The case is utterly appalling and out government should be saying something about it, as should the US government. Dr Sarki is, after all, a US citizen. But he’s not the only one to have disappeared.
