Karachi: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has said that it would file a murder case against former president General Pervez Musharraf on the basis of the UN commission’s report on former prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.
The enquiry report has indicted the then Musharraf regime for Bhutto’s death in a gun and bomb attack in Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on December 27, 2007.
Talking to media persons during a press conference, PPP’s Central Secretary Jehangir Badar said: “Bhutto’s assassins would not be identified on the basis of personal enmity but by acting within the parameters of justice and rule of law.”
It is pertinent to mention that the UN enquiry commission’s report had blamed the Musharraf government of ‘deliberately’ failing to probe the December 2007 suicide attack, adding that the tragedy could have been averted if adequate security arrangements would have been in place.
“The Musharraf government failed to provide foolproof security to Ms Bhutto which ultimately allowed a lethal assault on her. The security breach left wide-open room for an attack to happen,” the report said in its opening remarks.
