Islamabad Politics Report/Moazzam Raza Tabassam: Amir Fida Paracha the spokesman of the former President of Pakistan and President Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians in a statement said that the news flashed on television channels about Asif Ali Zardari being an absconder is malafide, false, concocted and to politically victimize, malign and defame the former President.
Amir Fida Paracha said that the truth is that the Director General FIA Bashir Memon is a staunch enemy of the PPP and its leadership whose brother is contesting election from Sindh as a GDA candidate. Bashir Memon wants to influence these elections in favor of his brother using his official position. PPP has umpteen times demanded his removal from the post for election process to be free, fair and transparent.
Spokesman said that the Additional Director General FIA Najaf Quli Mirza was involved in the incident in which Asif Ali Zardari was tortured and his tongue was slashed. Asif Ali Zardari had filed a case against him still to be heard.
Amir Fida Paracha said that the report submitted by the FIA in Supreme Court never mentioned Asif Ali Zardari as an accused. The news flashed that Asif Ali Zardari’s name is in challan and that he has been declared an absconder is totally wrong, malafide and with an intention of maligning and politically damaging Asif Ali Zardari who is contesting election for a National Assembly seat from Sindh.
Amir Fida Paracha said that the above two officers are on an adventure to malign and defame Asif Ali Zardari but they will fail.
