Bhutto: Penegakan Hukum di Pakistan Telah Runtuh

BINTANGNEWWS.com – Benazir Bhutto, mantan perdana menteri Pakistan, mengatakan kepada Al Jazeera keamanan di negaranya telah "ambruk" dan
menuduh pihak berwenang telah mengubah "mata buta" terhadap kelompok bersenjata di beberapa daerah.

"Bukan hanya daerah kesukuan kita yang berada di luar kendali kita, tapi bahkan lembah Swat yang indah sekarang berada di bawah pengambilalihan oleh kelompok Islam," kata Bhutto dalam program Frost Over the World di Al Jazeera pada hari Jumat.

Dia mengatakan bahwa "keamanan internal telah benar-benar ambruk di Pakistan" dan bahwa ini tidak mungkin terjadi "tanpa ada yang buta mata jika tidak berkolusi beralih  kebangkitnya militan dan militansi".

Komentarnya kepada Al Jazeera terjadi saat bentrokan antara pasukan pemerintah dan pejuang pro-Taliban di Pakistan yang memicu kekhawatiran bahwa Pervez Musharraf, presiden Pakistan, akan memberlakukan darurat militer.

More than 100 people are said to have been killed in fighting in the Swat valley over the last week.Pakistani authorities on Friday denied rumours that martial law had been imposed amid intense fighting between armed groups and government troops in Pakistan's northwest.

Fighters in the region showed journalists 48 men they described as government troops who had surrendered during the fighting.

The men were later said to have been released, though the Pakistani government did not confirm the men had been captured.

Meanwhile, Pakistani forces are also battling pro-Taliban fighters in North Waziristan, a tribal region on the border with Afghanistan, where members of al-Qaeda are believed to be sheltering.

Tantangan hukum
Ketegangan politik di Pakistan juga meningkat saat lawan menantang pemilihan ulang Musharraf sebagai presiden di pengadilan tertinggi.

Partai-partai oposisi memboikot pemilihan pada tanggal 6 Oktober, yang berarti bahwa masyarakat umum dengan mudah memenangkan mayoritas suara yang diberikan oleh politisi federal dan provinsi.

Namun Bhutto menegaskan bahwa Partai Rakyat Pakistan-nya akan menerima keputusan apapun yang dikeluarkan oleh pengadilan tertinggi.

"Kami akan kembali ke pengadilan tertinggi dalam pertimbangan apa pun yang diputuskannya untuk memberikan masalah pada legalitas Jenderal Musharraf," katanya kepada Al Jazeera.

Mahkamah Agung akan menyampaikan putusannya sebelum masa jabatan Musharraf berakhir pada tanggal 15 November.

Karachi bombing
Al Jazeera, Bhutto also condemned the bombing of her homecoming procession in October as a "horrific incident in which 158 innocent young men, a woman and a baby lost their lives".

She reiterated her call for international help with an investigation into the blast that struck her, saying that the UK's Scotland Yard or the FBI in the US could help to catch "the financers and the organisers" of the bombing.

The October 18 attack on Bhutto's convoy, as she travelled through the streets of Karachi, came just hours after the former prime minster returned to Pakistan from eight years of self-imposed exile.

Bhutto confirmed that she had sent a letter to Musharraf in which she "named three individuals" who she suspected "to stop the restoration of democracy" and who she thought might be involved in any attempt on her life.

Bhutto's family had remained in Dubai while she returned to Pakistan. She said her children had been asleep at the time of the blasts, "and in the morning they got text messages from their friends saying: 'We hope your mother is well.'"

She said her family supported her. "They understand that I'm doing this for their country and for all the people of Pakistan," she said.***
