Geneva: Imran Khan's supporters demonstrate outside UN office
A large number of former Pakistan PM Imran Khan's protesters assembled outside the UN office in Geneva on Monday and demonstrated against rights violations in the country.
Protesters holding flags of Pakistan and Imran Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) gathered in front of the Broken Chair monument across the street from the Palace of Nations, that houses the United Nations Office, reports ANI.
It is estimated that some 100 of the protestors were from other European countries like France, the Netherlands, Spain and Germany, reports the Indian news agency.
During the demonstration, protesters were seen shouting slogans like “Imran Tum Aage Badho Hum Tumhare Saath hai” (Imran you go ahead we are with you) and “Hume Chahiye Azadi” (We want Freedom).
They also demanded the release of Imran Riaz Khan, a Pakistani journalist and a YouTuber who was apprehended by police on May 11 at Sialkot International Airport and his current location has been untraceable ever since, reports ANI.
Imran Khan was arrested by Pakistan's law enforcers on May 9 in connection to a corruption case.
The country witnessed violent protests after his arrest.
