NEW YORK: Heraldo Munoz, chief of the UN Commission for probe into Benazir Bhutto’s murder said the report will unravel new facts and dispel all the doubts, Geo News reported Saturday.
The Secretary-General appointed Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, the Permanent Representative of Chile to the United Nations as head of the Commission which was constituted on the request by the government of Pakistan.
Heraldo urged the government of Pakistan to further probe into the matter, adding the report neither pinpoints anyone as the lead assassin nor does it exclude anyone from its ambit of suspicion.
Only the facts and circumstances involving the murder have been taken stock of, he added.
Talking to Geo News correspondent Azeem M Mian in an interview, the Commission’s head said the UN Commission mulled over all the facts and circumstances of the murder and it is hoped that the report will lead to new facts and clear the smokescreen, adding the timeline of the murder has come clear with the report.
The Commission’s report will go a long way in bringing the culprits and planners of the murder to the justice, he said.
No one including President Asif Ali Zardari has been given any exception in the report neither has anyone been held culpable, he clarified responding a query.
He said it is up to the Pak courts to investigate as to who are the beneficiaries of BB’s murder.
The funds for the probe were provided by Pakistan, Britain, US, Turkey and UAE; of them, less than half were used, he said.
Heraldo said the Pak agencies fully cooperated, adding meetings were held with Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and DG ISI.
‘I am thankful to them for giving useful information,’ he added.
