Rawalpindi, Feb 9(ANI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf will have to prove his innocence before the court in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case, Law Minister Babar Awan has said.
Former Prime Minister Benazir was targeted in a gun and bomb attack as she was leaving Liaqat Bagh in Rawalpindi after addressing a public rally on December 27, 2007.
"Musharraf is to face the court and the court will decide his fate," the Dawn quoted Babar, as telling reporters during a visit to the Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI).
The judiciary is independent and knows how to get its verdict implemented, said Babar, adding that the PPP-led government had always respected the judiciary and would also respect its decisions in the Benazir murder case.
"The PPP government always respects the judiciary and its decisions. It will also respect the court's decision in the BB assassination case," the law minister maintained. (ANI)
