Zardari to file three appeals against Benazir Bhutto case verdict
Zardari to file three appeals against Benazir Bhutto case verdict: Pakistan Peoples Party’s legal counsel Latif Khosa said on Thursday that former president Asif Ali Zardari will file three appeals against the anti-terrorism court’s verdict in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Zardari will file the appeals as Benazir’s legal heir and will be represented in court by Khosa as his legal counsel.
Over the right to challenge the verdict, Khosa claimed that any legal heir of the deceased has the right to challenge it.
“We are just exercising our legal right.”
Khosa, while addressing a news conference in Lahore, informed that the first appeal will be against the decision to hold a separate trial against former president Pervez Musharraf, he said.
Khosa claimed that Musharraf has been absconding for so long that he is “frustrating the law”. The court should not wait for him till he returns to the country, he said.
He also alleged that former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar provided a “safe passage” to Musharraf.
The decision to file an appeal was made during an advisory meeting of PPP’s senior leadership Thursday evening. The meeting was chaired by PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari.
Latif Khosa and Aitzaz Ahsan had earlier briefed party leaders over the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
The meeting was attended by prominent PPP leaders including Khursheed Shah, Faryal Talpur, Yousaf Raza Gilani, Qamar Zaman Qaira, Farhatullah Babar, and Nayyar Hussain Bukhari among others.
Earlier, Bilawal had called the decision disappointing and unacceptable, adding that the release of terrorists was not only unjust but also dangerous. According to Bilawal, the PPP would explore legal options in the case.
