Former Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) Director General Asad Durrani has accepted that he had distributed the money during the 1990 elections.

Speaking to anchorperson Javed Chaudhry on the Express News talk show ‘Kal Tak’ he said that he implemented the decision that was made in light of the situation of that time. He said that he was ready to face the trial anywhere. Durrani said that he had asked the court if he should disclose the reasons the money was distributed, but the court did not give him any response.

    And let it be known that he spread money just to steal votes from Benazir Bhutto and the PPP.

    What trial? It has already been established that he violated the constitution. All that remains is a conviction under article 6 and the hangman’s noose. The doctrine of necessity was invalidated by the SC when it declared the NRO void. He has no defence left. If the law were to take its course this man would be six feet under very soon.Recommend
