UN chief working to complete Bhutto inquiry commission

May 7, 2009

NEW YORK: United Nations (UN) Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday he was working hard to complete the fact-finding commission, which is to look into the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. Replying to a question at his monthly press conference at the UN headquarters, the secretary-general said he had still not been able to find the third member of the inquiry commission, which he announced in February. The three-member commission, which will be headed by Chile’s UN Ambassador Heraldo Munoz, includes Indonesia’s former attorney general Marzuki Dar Usman. The third member will either be from Norway or Sweden. “Unfortunately, we have not been able to find an appropriate [third member yet],” Ban said. app
