In 2006 the Supreme Court took up regular hearings of petitions filed on behalf of Pakistan’s ‘disappeared’. However, in November 2007, Pervez Musharraf imposed a state of emergency and deposed the majority of judges. Since the elections in February 2008, not much has improved for the “disappeared” or their families. The coalition members have failed to agree on when and how to bring back the deposed justices. Amnesty International calls on the new government to act now to end this grave human rights violation.
