Dear Chief Minister,
we are writing to you as supporters of Amnesty International, the non governmental organization which since 1961 has been working in defence of human rights, wherever they are violated.
We would like to express our concern about Muzaffar Bhutto's disappearance. He has not been seen or heard from since 25 February;
We urge you to conduct an immediate, prompt and impartial investigation into the whereabouts of Muzaffar Bhutto and inform his relatives, ensuring that anyone involved in his enforced disappearance, including at the highest levels of command, is promptly brought to justice and the victims are granted reparations;
We demand Muzaffar Bhutto’s immediate release or transfer to an official place of detention and promptly charged with an internationally recognizable offence and remanded by an independent court;
We are calling on you to ensure that Muzaffar Bhutto is not tortured or ill-treated, and is allowed access to family, lawyers of his choice and any medical treatment he may require given his health condition.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
