    How Pakistan's most corrupt politicians Asif Ali Zardari was selected as president (Flashbacks)



    The scandal-tainted rise of Asif Zardari

    Newly-elected Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.

    Allegedly one of Pakistan's most corrupt politicians, Asif Ali Zardari has been elected president by the Pakistani parliament and provincial assemblies.


    All remaining corruption charges against him were dropped in the months leading up to his election. What follows is a brief history of the criminal and corruption charges which have linked him with fraud, money-laundering, receiving bribes, and even murder.

    1990

    Arrested on charges of blackmail. Accused of attaching a bomb to a Pakistani businessman, forcing him to withdraw money from his bank account. Charges dropped in 1993 when wife Benazir Bhutto becomes Prime Minister for the second time. Serves as Minister for the Environment from 1993-1996.

    1993

    Murtaza Bhutto, brother of Benazir, confronts Zardari over bringing the Pakistan People's Party into disrepute over corrupt activities. Meeting ends acrimoniously with Murtaza Bhutto famously shaving off half of Zardari's moustache. It is widely believed that Zardari used police connections to have Murtaza Bhutto assassinated in 1996.

    1995

    Opens Citibank account which Swiss investigators allege passed some USD 40m in illegal payoffs from foreign companies doing business in Pakistan. Includes a one-time payoff of USD 10m from a West Asia gold bullion dealer in return for a monopoly on Pakistan gold imports.

    1997

    Zardari and Bhutto allegedly receive USD 2m in kickbacks relating to the purchase of 8,000 Polish tractors as part of the Awami Tractor Scheme.

    1997-2004

    Imprisoned in Pakistan on corruption charges and in connection with the murder of Judge Nizam Ahmed in 1996. Granted bail in November 2004 but was re-arrested on 21 December 2004 after failing to attend a hearing in the Nizam Ahmed case. Zardari alleges that he was tortured during his seven-year confinement - charges backed by human rights groups.

    1998

    Swiss Government gives Pakistan government documents relating to corruption allegations against Zardari and wife, Benazir Bhutto involving USD 13.7m in laundered money.

    French authorities reveal that Zardari proposed to give Dassault Aviation exclusive rights to replace Pakistani airforce fighter jets in return for a 5% commission.

    1998-1999

    Enquiry conducted by Pakistan's Public Accounts Committee into two counts of fraud worth nearly USD 3.3m over the purchase of helicopters. The case referred to the National Accountability Bureau in 2000-02 but no action was taken.

    August 2003

    Swiss magistrates find Zardari and Bhutto guilty of money laundering, sentencing them to six-month suspended jail terms, a fine of $50,000 and ordering them to pay USD 11m to the Pakistani government.

    August 2004

    Admitted to owning a 365-acre estate in England, including a 20-room mansion, which Pakistani authorities allege was bought with the proceeds of corruption.

    October 2006

    Application to halt corruption proceedings thrown out by Pakistan court. Gained the nickname "Mr. Ten-percent" after the cut he allegedly received from a series of corrupt business deals.

    March 2008

    Five different corruption cases against Zardari dropped by judges appointed by President Pervez Musharraf. Charges in connection with the murder of Justice Nizam Ahmed were also dropped.

    August 2008

    All cases against Zardari in Swiss courts dropped at the request of Pakistani authorities. USD 60m in allegedly laundered money restored. Zardari denies the money is his.

    6 September 2008

    Zardari elected President of Pakistan, winning 479 from 702 votes from lawmakers in both houses of parliament and four state assemblies.

    one thing is for sure, whoever criticize establishment in Pakistan rightly or wrongly you would see social media, electronic media, print media start bashing them from left right centre. that goes to show Pakistan is a dictatorial country one way or another take it Zardari for example, before his speech he was literally nowhere to seen in Pakistan politics, but all of sudden people start talking about Murtaza Bhutto murder, benazeer murder, new new accusation starting to come out I wonder is it someone behind all this or this is just coincidence your guess is as good as mine.

    When we read such news one feels discomfort.

    Army in past to some extent gave passege to this corrupt man and became president.
    Then Army generals salute him.
    How we can ignore all this.
    Now we believe that Army as an institution was not involved but a few generals did it for its personal gains.
    Those who did should also be brought to justice to avoid such things in future

    اسکا کوئی ذکر نئ ہے، جو جو بِڈن نے دبئ میں مُشرف اور پی پی پی کے درمیان پاور ٹرانسفر ڈیل کرائی تھی، جسکی رُو سے اِقتدار پی پی پی کو مُنتقِل ہونا تھا اور مُشرف کو سیف ایکزِٹ مِلنا تھا۔

    Zardari became President of Pakistan only only because PML-N voted in favor and elected him as President ...
    shame on PML-N its leaders and supporters for making one of the most corrupt person the president of Pakistan ...
    No patriot, would ever think of doing such a thing ...

    زرداری پی ایم ایل این کی وجہ سے نئ مشرف کی وجہ سے پریزیڈینٹ بنا تھا۔ مشرف اور پی پی پی(بے نطیر بھٹو) کے درمیان دُبئ میں ڈیل ہوئی تھی، جو کہ جو بِڈن نے ارینج کروائی تھی
