Musharraf may be quizzed in Benazir murder case
Islamabad: Amidst the rising demand for former President General Pervez Musharraf’s prosecution following the UN enquiry commission’s report over former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, Presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar has said that the ‘autocratic’ ruler may quizzed in the case.
Babar said the ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has asked Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to direct concerned authorities to take immediate step in this regard.
“The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has already asked Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani to take action against all those involved including Musharraf,” The Daily Times quoted Babar, as saying.
Holding Musharraf responsible for the fatal attack on Bhutto on December 27, 2007, Babar said the former President is avoiding action as he has been living abroad since the tragic incident took place.
He said the government has taken stern action against all those officials indicted in the UN commission’s probe report.
“Eight officials have been relieved of their duties while the service contract of a retired brigadier has been terminated,” Babar said.
