Press Briefing by the MQM Senior Deputy Convenor Nadeem Nusrat on the news of arrest of Mr Altaf Hussain in London
 Posted on: 6/3/2014 1
London – 3 June 2014 
(Update: 11.50am London time)
The MQM confirms that in the early hours today, the Metropolitan Police arrived at the residence of Mr Altaf Hussain in North London. They had the search warrant and said that they want to arrest Mr Hussain and take him to the police station where he will be questioned about money laundering investigation.
We would like to inform that Mr Hussain has been very ill for past several days and only yesterday the MQM Central Coordination Committee discussed his health situation and contacted his personal doctor. The doctor visited the residence of Mr Hussain and examined him. He advised to shift him to the hospital. He also consulted with various specialist consultants and it was decided that today, i.e. Tuesday, in the morning Mr Hussain will be admitted to a London Hospital where he will undergo treatment for the next few days.
Today, Mr Hussain was getting ready for the hospital when the police arrived at his house and informed him that he is being arrested for investigation. However, Mr Hussain is still at his residence and our lawyers are in contact with the police.
Mr Hussain is the leader of millions of people who is loved and adored by them. He has always preached for a peaceful struggle. Workers and supporters all over the world including Pakistan are very concerned and worried for his welfare on this news. We also feel and share their sentiments and appeal to the people to control their sentiments and maintain peace at all cost. We also appeal not to pay attention to rumours and keep in touch with the MQM Head Office for factual information.
