Ali Ahmad Kurd re-detained for 30 days

Pakistani authorities have yet again detained Ali Ahmed Kurd only after releasing the lawyer jsut a few days ago. Ali Ahmad Kurd was first held in November when President Musharraf imposed emergency rule. He was released last week but has now been detained again.

“Mr Kurd was trying to leave Quetta. He has been served a detention order and he will be under house arrest for 30 days, senior police official Rehmatullah Niazi told AFP. Kurd said that he had tried to go to address lawyers in Lahore, but authorities feared that he would cause trouble. “The rulers are scared that I will create problems for them and under this fear they have again detained me. This detention is illegal, Kurd said. “Our struggle for the independence of judiciary will continue and such steps cannot deter us, he said.
