Accountability demand 

This refers to the letters, ‘Exonerating Zardari’ (November 28) by Javaid Bashir and Ali Malik Tariq. How can it be a case of victimisation when a Swiss judge convicted both husband and wife for the crime? We know that the PPP government delayed writing a letter to the Swiss authorities to proceed further with the case, and when the time came, our high commissioner to the UK (Wajid Shamsul Hasan) silently took away all the documents of the case.

If the former president is indeed innocent of any wrongdoings, how is he living so lavishly? Why do the FBR and NAB not investigate how he accumulated all this wealth? These assets have not been declared and no tax returns have been filed, which is a legal requirement of the country. The people should demand accountability from all politicians, whether they belong to the PPP, the PML-N or any other political party.
