ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday accepted the resignation of Minister for Science and Technology Zahid Hamid, Express News reported. 

Hamid had tendered his resignation soon after a special court partially accepted former president Pervez Musharraf’s plea to include Hamid, among others, in the treason trial investigations.

Hamid was the law minister during Musharraf’s tenure and has been mentioned as a co-conspirator in the emergency imposed on November 3, 2007.

The court had decided that then prime minister Shaukat Aziz, then law minister Zahid Hamid and then chief justice of Pakistan Abdul Hameed Dogar will be included in the investigation but Musharraf’s request.

Talk about the fox guarding the hen house! This same character Zahid Hamid was put in charge of the investigation into Musharraf's treason charges and he instructed the JIT to just investigate Musharraf. Only Nawaz Sharif can so blatantly violate all rules of conduct. A principal abettor of the allgeded crime investigating the allged crime! It can't get any better than this.

Accepting resignation is not enough. For the same charges Musharraf was disbarred from participation in the elections and placed on ECL. The same should apply here. Seat in N/A to be forfeited and ECL applied. Nawaz will try to save his skin because he belongs to his corrupt kitchen cabinet.
