UN official complains on Jagan’s jailing

New York, Feb 2, 2013:
AP Human Rights Observers' Association, affiliated to United Nations Organization
(UNO) and International Bar Association, has viewed as gross human rights
violation the jailing of YSR Congress Party President Sri Y. S. Jagan Mohan
Reddy for the last 8 months before trial.

In a memorandum
submitted to the International Human Rights High Commissioner Navaneetam
Pillai, the Association’s President Tamim requested him to interfere and
protect the human rights in AP.

Tamim, who is also the
member of the UN Social and Economic Council, told Pillai in his memorandum
that Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy has been jailed illegally for the last eight months
without any trail in full violation of human rights and requested him to
involve in the issue and ensure that the young Kadapa MP was released from

“I also met UN Human Rights Deputy High Commissioner King Wah Kong,
Assistant Secretary General Ivan Ivanovic and Scretary-General Ban
Ki-moon’s special adviser Kim Won Soo and explained situation in AP,” Tamim
disclosed in a statement.

Tamim said in his memorandum to the UN officials that
Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy has been arrested and jailed after the death of Dr. YSR
to trouble him politically.CBI is not in a position to prove its charges
against him and willfully denying bail to him ever since his arrest eight
months ago, he complained to them.

Tamim also said with Sri Jagan Mohan Reddy’s arrest,
Dr. YSR family is being subjected to harassment and political vendetta. “Two
crore people signed condemning his arrest and if justice is not rendered
immediately, there is a chance of protests taking place across the state
causing law and order problems,” he said in his memorandum.
