Day on the Hill- Invite for Member of Congress

A call for the Restoration of the Supreme Court and the Rule of Law in Pakistan

An advocacy day on the Hill, Dec 5th, 2007

Pakistan is on the front line on the war on terror. A strong and stable Pakistan is in the best interests of the international community. Protection of the Rule of Law and independence of the judiciary is critical for the internal stability of Pakistan.

The events in Pakistan from the beginning of 2007 have undermined the Supreme Court, the independence of the judiciary, the press, and all other institutions that are hallmarks of a society based upon a competent legal structure. Media coverage of lawyers being beaten, imprisoned, and detained has provoked a global reaction from the international community.

It is of utmost importance that the United States conveys to the Government in Pakistan that the Rule of Law by the Restoration of the Supreme Court of Pakistan is integral and in the best interests of all parties.

Several Members of Congress have authored resolutions highlighting this issue. These are:

S. RES.372: Senator John Kerry (D-MA) and Joe Biden(D-DE)

H.RES 810: Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX)

H.Res.823: Congressman Ackerman (D-NY) & Congressman Delahunt (D-MA)

Senator Obama's statement on the Emergency in Pakistan

Senator Clinton's statement on the Emergency in Pakistan

Congresswoman Nita Lowey (NY) has issued a statement warning Musharraf

Trent Franks (R-AZ) has spoken on the issue of human rights violations in Pakistan

Concerned organizations, members of the public and the media are gathering on December 5, 2007, to show their support for several Resolutions in the U.S. Congress. Your support and presence will be an asset to our forum. Please RSVP as indicated below.

WHAT: A call for the Restoration of the Supreme Court and the Rule of Law in Pakistan
