Military Persecution of Political Leaders

Unbelievable pressure tactics are being employed to force PTI leaders to leave Imran Khan. In addition to ordinary blackmail based upon military intelligence files, this also includes attacks on damage to their homes and businesses, abductions and torture, threats to children, spouses and other family members, etc.

These tactics on a mass scale are gross violations of human rights and may even amount to crimes against humanity (Article 7, Rome Statute).

One of the above two tweets is from Imran Khan and provides such an example. The member of parliament (Malik Shahzad Awan) being pressured is saying that he has only two options left: suicide or a press conference (as demanded by the military to announce his separation from PTI).
