Ms Benazir Bhutto, her husband Asif Zardari, along with a Swiss lawyer, are charged guilty of arraying an illegal six per cent of commission or ‘bribe’ worth $12 million for awarding a pre-shipment customs inspection contract to two Swiss firms Societe Generale de Surveillance and Cotecna. Former first couple are ordered to repay GoP the full amount 11,997,423 $ along with a diamond necklace.

It would also be important to note that Benazir Bhutto and her husband were convicted in the same case by a court in Pakistan but the decision was overturned by Supreme Court and re-trial was ordered.

Former prime minister and her husband deny any conviction in these trials in the courts blaming them to be politically motivated charges by their rivals.

What is your opinion about the latest charge by Swiss court?

Is the couple’s claim, ‘Politically motivated charges by their rivals’, righteous?

Does indirect affirmation of Pakistani court’s decision dispose strong justice department in Pakistan?

What is the political future of Bhutto family?
