Pakistan: Doctor Released After 2 Years


A Pakistani-American doctor has been released after being held by the authorities for more than two years, the local news media reported. Dr. Safdar Sarki, an advocate for greater autonomy for Sindh Province, was taken to a hospital in Quetta after the provincial government of Baluchistan withdrew weapons charges against him. Dr. Sarki, who lives in Texas, was arrested during a visit to Karachi in February 2006.

The police in Baluchistan did not announce his arrest or any charges until last October. Pakistan’s Supreme Court identified him as one of the people held in a secret detention system.
