Swiss cases

Monday, March 08, 2010

The CEC, Justice (r) Hamid Ali Mirza, while dismissing the case against eligibility of the president, said that no court of law had convicted Mr Zardari of any crime. I would like to point out that in 2003 both Asif Zardari and Benazir Bhutto were convicted by Swiss judge Daniel Devaud, who sentenced them to a six-month suspended jail term, fined them $50,000 each and ordered them to pay more than $2 million to the Pakistani government.
