Bhutto assassination: Musharraf’s return ‘can’t be stopped’

Published: May 31, 2011

LAHORE: The Pakistan Peoples Party-led government cannot stop former president General Pervez Musharraf from coming back to the country by getting him declared a proclaimed offender from the courts, said All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) spokesman Fawad Chaudhry on Monday.

Chaudhry was responding to an anti-terrorism court’s decision to declare the former president a proclaimed offender in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.  He said the verdict was a pressure tactic meant to prevent Musharraf from returning. He criticised the judge and said that the decision was taken on political and not legal grounds.

    My Goodness, who is stopping Mush to come back to Pakistan.As a matter of fact he will be welcomed to face the courts.The fact is the Commando is a coward man and hiding with his ill gotten money in London, let it be a lesson to the future despots who may think twice before overthrowing an elected government regardless which party is in power.Honorable men don’t hide, lets see who is ” Scum of the Earth.”Recommend

    No body ever stopped him coming to Pakistan and he is not a ‘bhaghora’. He is a ‘shair’ (lion without tail) and shair will come to jungle when he sees fit but guess what, jungle will never be fit now.Recommend
