Aseefa Bhutto expresses concerns for her father’s life

Islamabad: Aseefa Bhutto Zardari Friday said her father Asif Ali Zardari has again been shifted to prison from hospital and his life was in danger.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was addressing a press conference at Zardari House Islamabad. She said that when she visited her father in hospital Friday morning doctors informed her that they are being pressurized to shift back President Zardari to jail whereas his condition requires that President Zardari should stay at hospital for further tests and treatment.

Two medical examinations were conducted, one by NAB authorities and other by judicial authorities. Both examinations show that President Zardari needs immediate medical attention. One of the reasons is that three arteries in his heart are blocked. President Zardari suffers with severe spinal issues as a result of 11 and half years of unlawful incarceration.

These as well as other issues and serious illness President Zardari needs immediate medical attention.

Aseefa Bhutto said that her family and Pakistan Peoples Party demand that President Zardari is shifted back immediately to hospital to receive proper medical treatment. This is his right as a citizen of Pakistan and also as former President and head of a political party and sitting MNA.

Denial of his right is a denial of human rights as well as justice. This is political victimization. He is the only former President not running away from the courts and from the country, she said.

She said that we would like to reiterate Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s statement earlier that it clearly shows the intent of government to endanger President Zardari’s life to achieve its own agenda. She warned that if anything happens to President Zardari the family and the party will hold this government responsible and accountable.

Former Senator Farhatullah Babar said that on the day when PM who has sold out Kashmir was asking people to protest against human rights violation in Kashmir has himself violated the basic rights of a former President of Pakistan and warned PM to do as much he wants but should be ready to bear the same when time comes.

Senator Sherry Rehman calling this government a darber of Yazid said that there will be consequences if government does not give up its conduct and warned that this government will have to face resistance by the PPP.
