Pakistan’s Supreme Court looks to forbid Zardari from leaving country

Pakistan’s Supreme Court Friday issued a notice to the government to comment on a petition, seeking a ban on President Asif Ali Zardari from leaving the country, court officials said.

President Zardari’s tenure will complete on September 8.

The petitioner says President Zardari knew the U.S. military operation that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011 and that he must also be questioned about the operation.

A journalist, Shahid Orakzai, has filed the petition, which says that President Zaradri did not share information with the military.

The notice was issued by a two-judge bench of the Supreme Court and the court will hear the case on September 3.
