Musharraf denies involvement in Benazir Bhutto's assassination

Islamabad , Wed, 22 Feb 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Feb 22 (ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has strongly denied his involvement in the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

 

Musharraf claims that he had informed Bhutto about the threats to her life before the first attack in October 2007.

 

"I was not in contact with the slain PPP chairperson after October 18," he said, adding that it was not his duty to provide security to Bhutto.

 

"The United Nations' report on Benazir's killing is baseless," the Daily Times quoted him, as saying.

 

In 2010, an independent United Nations inquiry had claimed that security arrangements by Pakistan's federal and local authorities to protect Bhutto were "fatally insufficient and ineffective" and subsequent investigations into her death were prejudiced and involved a whitewash.

 

The UN Commission of Inquiry, appointed in 2009 by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon at the request of the Pakistani Government, reached no conclusion about who exactly were the organizers and sponsors behind the attack in which a 15-year-old suicide bomber blew up Bhutto's vehicle in the city of Rawalpindi on 27 December 2007.
