Minister of State for Finance Saleem Mandviwalla confirmed on January 23
that murder charges against the owners of the Baldia Town factory that
caught fire on September 11 last year had been withdrawn. The investigation
officer was also changed.

On January 24, there was no general strike. The apparent silence of the
working class was a result of the systematic targeting of unions by the
state apparatus.
