Commenting on the Benazir case verdict in a series of tweets, the minister expressed his disappointment over recent verdicts, saying the decision to disqualify Nawaz Sharif and the Benazir verdict has cast doubts over the “system”.
The minister said that the judiciary was restored as a result of the struggle for an independent judiciary, but “we couldn’t restore its independence and honour”.
Rafique said that former military dictator Pervez Musharraf, one of the accused in the case, has turned out to be more powerful than the country’s judicial system.
The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) on Thursday announced its verdict in the murder case of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto after almost ten years.
The verdict announced by ATC Judge Asghar Khan at Adiala Jail cleared five accused in the case, sentenced two former police officials and declared former president Musharraf as an absconder.
