Sindh Government Decides Not To Release Suspects In Parveen Rehman Murder


Suspects in the slaying of prominent rights activist Parveen Rehman have been held without bail by the PPP-led government in Sindh.

Details indicate that the Sindh government has chosen to keep the suspects in custody for another three months under the Maintenance of Public Order Ordinance (MPO).

The province authorities stated in their statement that Parveen Rehman’s family members, including her sister, were in danger.

Perveen Rehman, leader of the Orangi Pilot Project (OPP), was murdered on March 13, 2013, outside her office in Orangi Town.

The Anti-Terrorism Court’s death verdicts for the Parveen Rehman murderers were reversed by the Sindh High Court (SHC) last month (ATC).

Rahim Swati, Amjad Hussain, Ayaz Swati, and Ahmed Hussain have appealed the ATC ruling to the Sindh High Court. The SHC reversed the ATC’s sentencing decisions after reviewing the matter at length.

The SHC overturned the death sentence and directed that the defendants be released if they were not wanted for any other crimes.
