UN panel questions ISI chief over Bhutto’s terror


Pakistan has allowed the UN commission investigating the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto to question top military officials in the country.

The commission has questioned Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Director Lt. Gen. Ahmed Shuja Pasha in Islamabad as part of its investigation.

The three-member panel has gotten the green light from President Asif Ali Zardari to interview anyone it wishes in Pakistan.

“The stature of Bhutto called for an independent, transparent and above-board investigation so that no accusation of bias of any kind could be made by any circle,” Presidential Spokesperson Farhatullah Babar quoted Zardari, as saying.

This new development reflects a turnaround in Pakistan’s position.

The army chief, the head of Pakistan’s spy agency and other senior military officers are believed to be on the commission’s interviewee wish list.

At the beginning of the current year, Islamabad said no to the UN panel’s request to question the heads of the military.

Bhutto was killed in an attack at a rally in Rawalpindi in December 2007. She was there to campaign ahead of parliamentary elections.
