Musharraf should face courts if he is brave Zardari

Pakistan Peoples Party leader Asif Ali Zardari, responding to allegations levelled by former President Pervez Musharraf of being complicit in Benazir Bhutto's assassination, said on Friday that the former general should return to Pakistan and face the courts if he is "brave".

In approving the Electoral Reforms Bill 2017, the Senate paved the way for Nawaz Sharif who was disqualified by the Supreme Court from the post of prime minister to regain the presidency of PML-N.

Zardari, 62, the co-chairperson Pakistan Peoples Party, said: "Me and Benazir were blamed (by Musharraf) for Murtaza Bhutto's murder. History is full of such accusations", the Express Tribune reported.

A Pakistani court last month sentenced two former police officers to 17 years in prison for failing to protect Bhutto. Musharraf's statement came days after he was accused of being involved in Benazir Bhutto's murder. "Every time there is a murder, the first thing that needs to be seen is who has the most to gain from the death".

"There was just one person that had everything to gain from Benazir's assassination and that was Asif Ali Zardari", Musharraf said, adding that it was his analysis of the case.

Talking with media on Saturday, Rabbani said that if Musharraf was fearless enough, he should return to Pakistan and face cases against him. He also accused Zardari of murdering Murtaza Bhutto on September 26, 1996.

"The charge they are levying against me is that I did not provide Benazir adequate security - something I was not responsible for".

Gulalai called Musharraf "innocent" and said he was being "trapped", adding that the nation should realise who benefited from Benazir's murder.
