U.N. Investigating Bhutto Murder
Posted on Jul 1, 2009
It’s been a year and a half since the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, and although her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, is now Pakistan’s president, local investigations haven’t produced many answers about her murder. Now a United Nations commission, led by Chilean Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, is conducting its own inquiry.
Al Jazeera English:
Bhutto’s party repeatedly hinted that Musharraf or his allies were involved and demanded a UN inquiry, claiming it was the only way the whole truth would be revealed.
Along with Munoz, the other UN investigators are Marzuki Darusman, a former Indonesian attorney-general, and Peter Fitzgerald, Ireland’s former deputy police commissioner, who headed the initial UN inquiry into the assassination of Rafiq al-Hariri, a former Lebanese prime minister, in 2005.
