Pakistan : Former military ruler Parvez Musharaf said he would return to Pakistan to face trial in the murder case of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Pakistan court on Thursday pronounced Musharaf a fugitive in the murder trial but acquitted five men accused of involvement in the 2007 assassination of Bhutto, the first female Prime Minster of a Muslim Country.
In a statement issued to the media Sunday, Musharaf said the verdict of the Rawalpindi Anti Terrorism court was not against him. “I will certainly come back to Pakistan and face the train, as and when I am medically fit,” he said. “I have been framed in the Benazir Bhutto murder case by way of political victimization, while I had nothing to do with her untimely and tragic death” he said.
