Bhutto: Trial and ExecutionBhutto: Trial and Execution

Cassell 1979 and Classic, Lahore, 1990.

‘A powerful indictment on a black chapter in the history of Pakistan,’ The Sunday Telegraph.
A disturbing book’, The Yorkshire Post

Excerpt:

Putting events into perspective, Bhutto’s death was inevitable. Those who were blinded by hope, optimism and trust in the judicial institutions of the country only saw at the end that from the beginning the minds of the military authorities were already made up. The judicial process merely prolonged the agony and uncertainty. No one could honestly say that Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was sent to death for his alleged part in a murder; he was sent to death because in the political climate of Pakistan at the time, the people who had the power wanted him out of the way. Otherwise mercy could easily have been shown by the executive authorities. What deliberations they did have must have been over whether or not they would be able to get away with it.
