Pakistan requests Interpol again to arrest Musharraf
Islamabad: The Pakistan government has dispatched another letter to the International Police (Interpol), requesting them to arrest former president Pervez Musharraf, who had been declared a prime accused in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Pakistan’s Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), which has been investigating the case, attached arrest warrants for Musharraf as well as some pieces of evidence, with the letter.
The Interpol’s office in France had earlier returned a similar request by the FIA, saying that incriminating material should be forwarded.
The evidence dispatched with the letter on Thursday included a statement by US Journalist Mark Siegel and records of e-mails sent by Musharraf to former premier Benazir Bhutto, the Express Tribune reports.
According to the paper, FIA Special Public Prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali confirmed that the letter had been dispatched.
Earlier, the UK government also denied the Pakistan government’s request to repatriate Musharraf as he was wanted in the case.
The UK authorities had said that there was no treaty between the two countries for the repatriation.
