Antikorruptionsbewegung: Indische Behörden müssen die Meinungsfreiheit und Versammlungsfreiheit respektieren

Anna Hazare, a social activist, and a number of his supporters were arrested in New Delhi on 16 August 2011 and detained because the police claimed they were likely to “breach the peace”, by proceeding with a planned fast and protest without undertaking in advance to comply with the conditions imposed by the Delhi Police. They were released shortly thereafter but Hazare refused to leave the prison unless the police allowed the fast and protest to proceed without any conditions. An agreement has now been arrived at and the fast and protest will go ahead, with an undertaking reportedly signed by Hazare and other organisers.
