Musharraf, not PPP hiding from courts, Sherry

ISLAMABAD, September 21, 2017: Vice-President PPPP, Senator Sherry Rehman speaking to the media outside Lahore High Court, Rawalpindi bench today, appealed for swift justice for Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

Today was the first hearing on the pleas submitted by former President Asif Ali Zardari on the Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto murder case.

Rehman said, “It has been 10 years since SMBB’s assassination and we are still fighting for justice. We were not allowed to become party to the case this whole decade. Now in appeal against the verdict that allows the perpetrators and planners to go free the PPP will go on every forum to appeal and fight for justice. We will knock on every door if that’s what it takes”.

“The whole nation anxiously waited for this verdict with us regardless of their political affiliation,” she added.

Responding to the bizarre allegations leveled by Pervez Musharraf against Asif Ali Zardari, Rehman said, “If Musharraf knew about SMBB’s and Murtaza Bhutto’s murderers then why was he quiet until now? Why didn’t Musharraf speak up earlier when the UN Commission came? Musharraf was in power for 10 years in Pakistan so why did he not do anything for Murtaza Bhutto’s case? He is worried now that questions will be asked about his role in her murder. This is a classic case of “chor machaye shor”. We all know that SMBB specifically took Musharraf’s name in her e-mail to Mark Seigel”.

Rehman further added, “It has been 10 years since SMBB died and somehow he just woke up about her murderers now? If Zardari wanted to run from the SMBB cases then he would have never filed three appeals. Whatever Musharraf has to say, he should say it in Pakistan”.

“Why did Musharraf’s own people try to wash away evidence and cover up the crime? Who was involved in this conspiracy? These questions are very serious and should not be forgotten because we will always keep appealing until we achieve justice,” concluded the Senator.
