Why has Pakistan sentenced a former president to death?
"Pakistan was founded in nineteen forty seven. It has not proved an easy country to lead indeed indeed. It's something of a Wanda anyone tries. In those seven. Short decades of its existence Pakistan has seen two presidents or the equivalent overthrown in coups. WHO's to forced into resignation to quitting to avoid impeachment one hanged one killed in an arguably suspicious plane crash one chased into exile one one dying from illness in office of Pakistan's prime ministers four have being sacked three unloaded by their own parties. One chased into exile one on assassinated one chased into exile and then assassinated upon their return and these are an incomplete assessment of the hazards attendant upon high office in Pakistan. We've only got about five minutes and at any rate to say. Nothing of uncountable. Attempted assassinations failed. Coups d'etat and sundry abortive altuve plots any occupant of Pakistan's presidential palace or prime ministerial residence nose to sleep with one eye open and a pistol beneath a pillow pillow so it is possible that Pervez Musharraf who was president of Pakistan between two thousand and one and two thousand eight has responded philosophically to the death sentence passed upon him this week by a court in Islamabad which convicted him of high treason. Musharraf cannot claim that he didn't know what he was getting himself into to inaction at. This moment is suicide for Pakistan and I cannot allow this country to commit suicide. I had to take this action in order to preserve the democratic transition then rick I initiated Massara also enjoys the constellation that the sentence is unlikely ever to be enacted he received news of the verdict in Dubai. Are you where he has lived since two thousand sixteen having prudently contracted around then a mysterious ailment. That could not possibly have been treated. In any of Pakistan's many perfectly serviceable hospitals certain reprehensible cynics have further suggested that the United Arab Emirates lack of an extradition treaty with Pakistan may have been as much a factor in sheriff's choice of destination as the healthcare in assessing the reasons for what has befallen Musharraf. It is worth recapping how he gained power in Pakistan and how he lost it. Musharraf was a career army officer and by one thousand nine hundred nine join held the rank of general and the title of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Pakistan's senior most military role that year tensions between Musharaff Graf and then Prime Minister Sharif climaxed in a coup d'etat in which Musharaff seized power. I would like to please do not expect your level of democracy which you learned over a number of centuries all trying to learn and we are doing well the last time Musharraf held office surviving at least a two assassination attempts until two thousand eight when he resigned amid chaos and turbulence encroaching from a number of fronts. He left for London and returned to Pakistan in two thousand thirteen hoping to campaign for office again but found himself under house arrest. Prominent among a lengthy list of accusations against him was involvement in the assassination of former prime minister and former Philo exile Benazir Bhutto. who was murdered shortly after her return to Pakistan in two thousand and seven tourist allies and we are prepared to risk the liberty but we are not prepared to surrender our great nation the militants? This is not what Musharraf has been convicted of however however the high treason charge relates to his unsuccessful last-ditch attempt to prolong his presidency in two thousand and seven. He declared a state of emergency see and suspended. The constitution pulled the plugs on TV. Channels sacked the chief justice of the Supreme Court and had several opposition figures placed under house. Arrest I including current Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan Musharraf may be reflecting that some of his former foes have long memories but so Doodoo who do some of his former comrades Pakistan's military has always taken a flexible view of the convention of submission to Civilian Command and one of the more more brow arching responses to the death sentence against Musharraf has come from the Pakistani military's media department which said that the sentence had been received and with a lot of pain and anguish by the rank and file of Pakistan's armed forces. It also suggested in an unmistakable tone of airy menace that June legal. Google process seems to have been ignored and that an officer of Musharraf's statue could surely never be a traitor. Nice little independent judiciary dish area. You have here wouldn't want anything to happen to. If one sets aside any squeamishness about capital punishment with the conviction of Michelle off is arguably a step forward for Pakistan's always fraught and fragile constitutional democracy a robust assertion of the rule of law against a rogue officer who took power by force and tried to keep it by the same means however nobody in Pakistan needs reminding of the tendency of Pakistan's military to assert itself right back Woah never done in China because children deal outside Pete as we go to Air Musharaff's legal team claimed their client intends to challenge the guilty verdict and the death sentence in Pakistan's Supreme Court. It would be better for his country and himself if he did so from a distance

"And when it was announced there would be elections Benazir's path to power was clear. She ran and she was. Four months later. She was the Muslim world's first female, prime minister. Java Jabbar served in her first cabinet and says she was literally full of surprises. To carry a child to be pregnant and to keep it a secret a superstate secret, which none of us in cabinet, virtually real that this. About for delivering. It'd be old. Sadly, we. She is gone in to deliver democracy. She's also. As prime minister Benazir was now in a position to advance her ideals, many inherited from her father, but she faced multiple problems the military aware of her rage about her father's death, never trusted her and the Soviets had been driven from Afghanistan, which meant thousands of radicalized Islamist fighters had time on their hands. And some of them began to plot to kill her. I've seen documents detailing assassination attempts from this period in her life more than a decade before they tried to kill her in Karachi. Their accounts of federal police investigations, and they say that in one thousand nine hundred ninety three a hit team tried to plant a bomb in a sewer outside Benazir's, family home. They knew she'd pass over it on her way to visit her mother, the assassins were when a police officer asked them what they were up to looking for my spectacles, one said, I've dropped them down the drain. The officer told them to move on. And they did. Fearing they'd be recognized if they returned they hatched a new plan. Hire a former army sniper to shoot Benazir at a rally. They got the gun.

"That's when I realized that we were being shot with bits of flesh. The bombs killed more than one hundred and fifty people Benazir Bhutto was not among them. She was inside the fortified bus at the time of the attack and was whisked home unscathed. I rushed to her place for a quick interview. She said her supporters had died defending democracy. As we parted. It's occurred to me that her days were numbered. And she seemed to be thinking the same thing. She pursed lips instructor shoulders. I thought she's resigned to her fate. She said goodbye. Good luck. I said, but I thought. Luck won't be enough. No one ever claimed responsibility for the Karachi attack. So who did it? My search for answers began immediately. Remember, it's yet. Yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. It's hard to imagine. It's been ten years like me, zephyr has been unable to let the Benazir case rest for the last decade. He's been using his very good contacts in the state and in the Bhutto family to try to work out. What happened? The most important document. We got hold of relating to the Karachi attack is a secret report compiled by all the main security agencies. This report all one hundred twenty eight pages of it tells you everything, but who did is which you think is important. You'd think but he's right. The tension between the police who are investigating on the ground and the upper echelons of the intelligence world runs right through the Karachi files. And I sat down and went through them together. There are some interesting bits which revealing. But almost inadvertently one of the things that is quite striking is the information about the detonator. And that's really the best thing in it talk us through that was it say about the detonator used in the attack. So the report says that there is conclusive evidence that this was a suicide bombing a twin suicide bombing, and that it was not detonated remotely, and they know this because they found the striker sleeve or the detonation mechanism which the bomber uses called A M UV to strike us leave. So how does this you V two thing word it essentially works like the grenade. Yeah. So it requires someone to operate the point about that is that this wasn't a remote detonations wasn't mobile phone and five hundred yards away. This was a suicide attacker who did it himself. That's right. But why the discovery of this strike asleep? Is important is because the same mechanism was found to be used in eleven other attacks that happen in different parts of the country earlier that year. That's right. I'm just looking at a bit. Here says seventy seventy-one explosives expert produced a document just two days after the attack and I read elsewhere in the reporter that he find his destination. He went straight down there. He's obviously the key explosives here saying here Motors Randa and triggering mechanism used in eleven suicide bombings is manual and mechanical by using the striker sleeve MU v too. So that's the one you've just mentioned with the same. Lot numbers and factory code except little variation in manufacturing year run through the eleven attacks. This analysis is clear indicator and reveals that a specific group as ever people nervous of naming the group gets the Pakistan Taliban. But he reveals that a specific group is involved in at least eleven cases, including this one. And we know it's Pakistan Taliban because they were responsible for these other eleven attacks. Right. That's right. Yup. I think it's just worth spelling out for people who are not familiar with Pakistan. Why would a senior guy this a real expert, obviously, very respected. Why would he use the phrase? A specific group is involved when he knows perfectly. Well, because he's investigated the other ones that is the Pakistan Taliban, maybe he was being cautious. But I have to say having met these guys and spent a lot of time with these guys. I mean, these are some of the bravest people you'll ever meet your life. I've not met for. Lost colleagues and comrades and they are in mortal combat with the Taliban. I totally get that. Let me just explain myself. I think the police in Pakistan are extraordinarily courageous by any standard. But what they also is politically savvy what he's worried about someone in the state getting at him for being too specific about naming the Taliban. This may need some explanation. The Benazir Bhutto.
