巴基斯坦: 前人权部长因掠夺土地指控被捕

巴基斯坦前人权部长周六在首都因一项长达数十年的土地掠夺指控被捕, 她的女儿和另一位前部长说.

希琳·马扎里, who served in the cabinet-level position under former prime minister Imran Khan, was detained by police near her Islamabad home, daughter Imaan Mazari said in a tweet.

她说: “Male police have beaten and taken my mother away and I have been told that anti-corruption wing of Lahore has arrested her.”

Footage on local Geo TV showed female police officers detaining Mazari. There was no immediate comment from Pakistani police.

Fawad Chaudhry, former information minister in Khan’s administration, said on Geo TV that Mazari was manhandled during the arrest by anti-corruption police. He alleged the senior leader in Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party had been politically targeted by the new administration of prime minister Shahbaz Sharif under the guise of a land dispute allegation dating back to 1972.

Mazari has been critical of Sharif’s government in tweets since Khan’s government was toppled in a no-confidence vote in parliament last month. Khan is mobilising supporters through public rallies across the country to pressure the government into an early election.
