Ex-Pak Army Chief files review plea against SC's verdict in 1990 poll rigging case

Islamabad, Thu, 22 Nov 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Nov. 22 (ANI): Former Pakistan Army Chief General (retd) Mirza Aslam Beg has filed a review petition against Supreme Court's verdict in the Asghar Khan 1990 poll rigging case, saying that he did not have any role in distributing money to politicians.

A petition filed in 1996 by former Air Marshal Asghar Khan had accused the ISI of financing politicians in the 1990 elections by dishing out Rs 140 million to create the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) and prevent Benazir Bhutto's PPP from winning the polls. The petition was based on an affidavit of the ISI's former director general Lt-Gen (retired) Asad Durrani, reports The Express Tribune.

In its verdict, the apex court concluded that then president Ghulam Ishaq Khan, along with Beg and Durrani, distributed funds among various political quarters to influence the 1990 general elections.

The ruling said Ghulam Ishaq Khan, Beg and Durrani violated the Constitution, and ordered the government to take legal action against them. (ANI)
