After the publication of our latest Rumor Mill report which concerned the alleged pardoning of the Police officer involved in the murder of Murtaza Bhutto by the Dogar Court, we very soon received a confirmation report from another credible source who states
Yes, all the police officers implicated in the Murtaza Bhutto case (including Shoaib Suddle), were given extensions in tenure equivalent to the time they spent under suspension.
It is a novel decision and contrary to all legal precedents.
After this decision, several government officers who had for one reason or another been suspended in their careers also filed cases seeking similar extensions in their retirement ages.
Now I believe the government has been forced to file a review of the decision. Neither Dogar nor Zardari realised (or cared) at the time that the Supreme Court decision would not simply help out a few police officers Zardari sympathised with but would create a precedent for thousands and thousands of civil servants.
The matter has been reported in the press.
Its interesting to note that practically all the people involved in the 1996 assassination have now been set free and more importantly rewarded, yet not a single person was brought to justice despite the fact it happened during his sister, Benazir Bhutto’s second term as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Ironically it may seem to be almost like a repeat telecast of the same assassination where today we stand yet again having witnessed another Bhutto being murdered on Dec 27th and have yet to see a single person be caught and brought to justice. Need I say more
