Pak free to make Bhutto probe public

world Updated: Dec 07, 2012 01:15 IST

A Pakistani anti-terrorism court has ruled that the government does not need permission from any authority to make public the findings of the probe into the Benazir Bhutto assassination case or judicial proceedings against those accused.

The anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi gave its ruling on Wednesday in response to an application filed by special public prosecutor Chaudhry Zulfiqar Ali that had asked Judge Chaudhry Habib-ur-Rehman.

Five men Aitzaz Sherazi, Abdul Rasheed Turabi, Sher Zaman, Rafaqat Hussain and Hassnain Gul have been arrested and charged with involvement in the assassination of Bhutto.

Their trial is being conducted behind closed doors at Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi for security reasons.
