Zardari may leave Pak after completing term

ISLAMABAD: Zardari is expected to leave Pakistan after completing his term as President on 8 September due to security threats and fears about the reopening of graft cases, according to a media report on Sunday.
Zardari’s friends have advised him to leave Pakistan because of ‘serious threats to his life’, the report on the website of the Dawn newspaper quoted sources close to the President as saying.
A
nother ‘core reason’ that could force Zardari to leave the country is corruption cases pending against him, the sources said. The Supreme Court has already heard a case about reopening graft cases against Zardari in Switzerland. Zardari’s legal aides are aware that presidential immunity will not be available to him once he completes his term in September.

The recent assassination in Karachi of Zardari’s chief security officer Bilal Sheikh was a wake up call for the President and his family. Once Zardari steps down, extensive security will not be provided to him.
