After the assassination of the PPP leader, Ms Benazir Bhutto, the PPP had expressed its lack of confidence in the enquiry ordered by the government of General Pervez Musharraf and had demanded a UN enquiry into the circumstances of her death. Considering the situation at the time, the demand of the PPP and other political parties for the restoration of a democratic rule in the country and the lack of public confidence in the impartiality of General Musharraf's government, the demand to ask the UN to carry out the investigation appeared to be justified. In an earlier article, I was among those who supported this demand. Nothing less, I felt would satisfy a large section of the population that the enquiry had been impartial. The situation since has changed. The PPP is itself in government and the slain ladies' husband is in control. In the circumstances it makes no sense to ask the UN to carry out the enquiry. The former government had associated Scotland Yard, an acknowledged investigating agency, with the enquiry and if the present government is not satisfied with its findings, it can associate other reputable investigating agencies with this task. The UN can do no more. It is odd that the government when it is in a position to have the investigation conducted by a team of investigators of its choice, should ask the UN to do so. Moreover the performance of the UN in the investigation into the murder of Premier Hariri of Lebanon in 2005 has so far produced no results. In that case Syria was suspected of having been involved. In this case there has been no suggestion that a foreign power was involved in Benazir Bhutto's murder. If the investigation reveals any such involvement, the evidence could be provided to the UN. In the case of the prime minister of Lebanon, the UN even after more than three years of his murder, has not been able to reach any conclusion. A demand has been made recently by Mumtaz Bhutto to associate him with the enquiry into Benazir Bhutto's murder. It is a request that is worthy of serious consideration. As the head of the Bhutto clan, his request is justified and if he is associated with the enquiry appointed by the government, the proceedings are likely to be expedited. In the meantime it would be desirable that the findings of the enquiry with which the Scotland Yard team was associated are made public so that the people know what in their opinion caused her death and who was responsible for it. It is surprising that the government did not do so even after six months of her murder. The full report should be made public so that the people are made aware of the circumstances in which in the opinion of the investigators, she lost her life. The writer is ex-air marshal
