31 Août 2017

On December 27, 2007, when she came out of park after addressing an election rally, Benazir Bhutto was killed in a gun and bombing attack in Rawalpindi. He has denied the allegation.

Musharraf was charged in 2013 of being culpable in Bhutto's murder.

Musharraf, 74, has been living in Dubai since a year ago when he was allowed to leave Pakistan on pretext of medical treatment.

The anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi ruled he had "absconded", a court official told reporters outside, saying it had also ordered the confiscation of his property.

"There will be no justice till Pervez Musharraf answers for his crimes", she tweeted.

The court has even acquitted five other suspects.

They were set to walk free almost 10 years after they were first arrested, though a defence lawyer said it was not yet clear when they would be released. Both are also fined Rs 0.5 million each and were arrested from the court after verdict.

ATC Judge Asghar Khan announced the verdict in court, sentencing former Rawalpindi CPO Saud Aziz and former Rawal Town SP Khurram Shahzad- suspects out on bail - to 17 years in prison.

The two officials were accused of security breaches and covering up evidence by hosing down the crime scene.

The Pakistan government had blamed the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) for Bhutto's killing. At least 23 other people were also killed in that attack.

A 2010 United Nations report found a "range of government officials failed profoundly in their efforts first to protect Ms. Bhutto, and second to investigate with vigor all those responsible for her murder, not only in the execution of the attack, but also in its conception, planning and financing". They were among seven men indicted for conspiracy to commit murder in 2011. "So the mystery remains unsolved".

Five suspects, Rafaqat Hussain, Husnain Gul, Sher Zaman, Aitzaz Shah and Abdul Rashid, all alleged operatives of the banned terror outfit Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) have been acquitted on all charges in the case.
