Killers of Benazir Bhutto will be exposed: Zardari


Islamabad : Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said Government will pursue investigations into assassination of Benazir Bhutto vigorously and will expose culprits before the whole world.

“Investigations will soon be completed and will be made public,” the President told a delegation of the Peoples Party, the Presidential spokesman said.

Last month the UN Inquiry Commission into the assassination of Benazir Bhutto released its report and suggested that the former government under President Pervez Musharraf did not take security measures for Benazir Bhutto.

The UN Commission was not mandated to investigate as to who would have been involved and the task was to determine the circumstances which led to attack on the former prime minister.

Benazir Bhutto was killed in firing and suicide attack in the city of Rawalpindi in December 2007.
Zardari said that the UN report had strengthened the hands of the Government to pursue the investigation in the country.

He said that some people had objected to ‘our decision to request for a UN Inquiry Commission but we believe that international inquiry was necessary for placing the facts in a correct perspective for historical record’.

He said that his Party was seeking revenge for the assassination through democracy and the UN report served this purpose.
