Naudero (Pakistan), Apr 5(ANI): The Central Executive Committee (CEC) of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has said the party would resist the trial of its late leader, Benazir Bhutto, and her mother Begum Nusrat Bhutto.

Addressing the media here, PPP Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab and Sindh Chief Minister's Adviser on Information, Jamil Soomro, said there was stiff resentment among CEC members over the issue of Swiss cases.

Wahab said the PPP leaders and workers would permit the trial of their leaders at any cost, adding that the CEC decided against reopening the Zulfikar Ali Bhutto case.

She further 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 Dawn reports.

The CEC also reposed confidence in the leadership of PPP co-chairman President Asif Ali Zardari.

Wahab said the CEC also praised the leadership of Zardari for steering the country out of an economic crisis and resolving the matter of National Finance Commission Award. (ANI)
