Justice for Gulalai

Reach All Women in WAR on Facebook:

Brave Pashtun activist & 2017 #AnnaPolitkovskayaAward winner Gulalai Ismailwas arrested yesterday at Islamabad airport on charges of participating in and speaking at a peaceful demonstration in August 2018. She was kept in detention all day long and released on pre-arrest bail in the evening. Gulalai appeared in court today and the bail was confirmed, amidst fears that she would be re-arrested. Her passport was taken by the Pakistani authorities and was not returned to her and Gulalai’s name continues to be on an Exit Control List, as she is banned from foreign travel. RAW in WAR: Reach All Women in WAR called on Imran Khan (official) and his Government to ensure the safety and security of human rights activist Gulalai Ismail and to stop the persecution against her. All criminal charges against Gulalai – for peacefully exercising her right to freedom of expression, should be dropped immediately and Gulalai’s passport should be returned to her. The Pakistani authorities should ensure Gulalai’s name is taken off the Exit Control List and she is allowed to travel internationally. #RefusingToBeSilenced #JusticeForGulalai #FreeGulalaiIsmailAwareGirls Pak
