Benazir Bhutto assassination: `Pakistan keeping UN letter under wraps`
Islamabad: The Pakistan government has kept secret a ‘strongly worded’ letter of the UN written in reaction to the country’s response to an inquiry report on Benazir Bhutto assassination, it has emerged.
The letter was written by Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, the head of a three-member inquiry commission on Benazir assassination, after then foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi sent a reply to the UN in July 2010 raising serious objections to the 60-page UN report released on April 15, 2010.
According to the Dawn, Haroon is believed to have met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and requested him not to release the substantive part of the letter.
The request was accepted, the paper said.
Foreign Office spokesman Moazzam Khan expressed ignorance about the letter and said he would have to get information from relevant officers.
According to the paper, Qureshi confirmed that the UN letter was lying with the Foreign Office, but he declined to comment on it.
But he regretted that even after a lapse of five years, the PPP government had failed to expose the faces behind the assassination, the paper said.
