She said no case could be reopened against President Zardari, adding there was not a single such example in the world. - Photo by APP.

    NAUDERO: The central executive committee of the Pakistan People’s Party, which met in the camp office of President House here on Saturday night, reposed confidence in the leadership of President Asif Ali Zardari and resolved that the party would resist the trial of its late leader, Benazir Bhutto and Begum Nusrat Bhutto.

    Briefing journalists, PPP information secretary Fauzia Wahab and the Sindh chief minister’s adviser on information, Jamil Soomro, said that there was stiff resentment among CEC members over the issue of Swiss cases.

    Ms Wahab said the PPP leaders and workers would not at any cost permit the trial of their leaders.

    In replying to a question, Ms Wahab said the CEC had not decided to reopen the Z. A. Bhutto case.

    She said the Swiss cases technically could not be reopened as they had been decided on merit and the Swiss attorney had stated that there was no possibility of reopening such cases.

    The CEC paid tributes to the leadership of Z.A. Bhutto, saying that he had given Pakistan a unanimous constitution and reconstructed the country.

    She said the CEC also praised the leadership of PPP co-chairman President Asif Ali Zardari for steering the country out of an economic crisis and resolving the matter of NFC award.

    The meeting congratulated the president for evolving a consensus on the 18th amendment and termed him the symbol of federation.

    The meeting appreciated the efforts of Senator Raza Rabbani and members of the constitutional committee for achieving a consensus over the draft.

    Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani, his adviser Senator Raza Rabbani, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira, PPP General Secretary Jehangir Badar, Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Gilgit-Baltistan Governor Dr Shama Khalid, Chief Minister Syed Mehdi Shah, Aitzaz Ahsan, Faryal Talpur and Farhatullah Babar attended the meeting.

    Senator Dr Safdar Abbasi was conspicuous by his absence.

    Waseem Shamsi adds from Sukkur:

    The tone for the meeting was said earlier by Federal Minister for Information Qamar Zaman Kaira and PPP Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab who said that President Asif Ali Zardari enjoyed ‘immunity’ under the Constitution.

    Talking to reporters at the Sukkur airport, Ms Wahab said the government had no intention of making a request to the Swiss government to reopen cases against President Zardari.

    Mr Kaira was rather circumspect in his comments before journalists saying the Swiss attorney general had already closed the cases citing non-availability of evidence. He, however, said that Pakistan People’s Party was “not afraid of such cases”.

    Ms Wahab said according to international law and Pakistan’s Constitution, no legal proceedings could be initiated against a head of state. She said no case could be reopened against President Zardari, adding there was not a single such example in the world.

    The PPP information secretary wondered how it could be justified to write to the Swiss authorities to reopen the cases against President Zardari as both the international practice and international conventions did not permit for it.

    The bloody face of tyranny, these traitors should all be hanged. We call our selves Muslims, and yet these clowns are allowed to do all of this and get away from it scratch free. I remember that the Holy prophet said that even if his own daughter was guilty of a crime he would not forgive her, when he was asked to let go a woman of a powerful tribe even though she was guilty of a crime. Hazrat Omar went to court when he was summoned by the Qazi and accused of a crime. They were men more powerful then the power hungry ego maniacs of today. And we can find many more examples from our own history that shown that men more stronger and powerful then today leaders stood in the court of law and defended them selves against any accusations. And these people are talking about the fact that the president has immunity, from what. So tom he can kill someone and still will not be eligible for a trial. Shameful!
    May Allah give us the strength to stand up in the face of tyranny, fix our lives and be strong enough to clean our selves of this ***** that is our leaders. Stop looking at things from the prism of ethnicity, and start thinking as a nation. :pakistan:

    What a moronic idea in the history of moronic ideas by these morons. Linking Zardaris cases with that of BB's is just absurd. Besides who the heck these idiots think they are, there is no one above the law. Too bad if you think so. It is no one fault if your born this stupid.

    Federal Law Minister Babar Awan had earlier requested NAB to hand over the 12 sealed cartons containing President Zardari's Swiss Cases records. –File Photo

    ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau has refused to hand over the record of President Zardari's Swiss cases to the Federal Law Ministry, DawnNews reported.

    These records, which have been stuffed into 12 sealed cartons, were retrieved from the Pakistani High Commission in London.

    In the case itself, President Asif Ali Zardari and his late wife, the former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto have been accused of receiving kickbacks worth millions of dollars in the SGS-Cotecna case.

    Sources in the Law Ministry have told Dawnnews that the Federal Law Minister, Babar Awan had earlier requested NAB to hand over the sealed documents to his Ministry.

    Official sources say that the law ministry would prefer to keep such sensitive records with itself.

    When Dawnnews contacted the NAB spokesman, Ghazi Khan, he claimed that the 12 sealed cartons which contain the Swiss Cases records are in safe hands at the Bureau. However, he refused to divulge any further information on the matter.
