Benazir sends ‘defamation’ notice to Arbab - By Amir Wasim

This is good news, if true as reported. Now the forces that allege the Chairperson for life and her estranged husband is a crook through and through can battle it out legally.

Why has no one fired off an FIR yet against he Chairperson for life naming her and her party cohorts directly responsible for the death of over 140 innocent bystanders?

ISLAMABAD, Oct 26: Pakistan People’s Party chairperson Benazir Bhutto has sent a legal notice to Sindh Chief Minister Arbab Ghulam Rahim demanding cash compensation of Rs100 million for allegedly defaming her by “levelling baseless, malicious, concocted and fabricated allegations” against her. The legal notice has been issued through her counsel Senator Farooq Naek. The chief minister, while talking to reporters after a cabinet meeting on Oct 24, had alleged that Ms Bhutto had plundered national wealth of around Rs90 billion and that she must return the amount. The notice says that the “wild and false allegation” was aimed at “character assassination of a formidable people’s leader risking her life to save Pakistan by saving democracy and bringing change through Awami Raj”. It says the “false and fabricated allegation” has “disreputed and defamed” the reputation of Ms Bhutto.
