UK to withdraw security to Musharraf: report

Geo News reported that the UK has decided to "take back" the protocol accorded to the former Pakistan President "after the UN report blamed him for not providing adequate security to Benazir Bhutto."

The car provided to him was taken back, it said.
Four Scotland Yard personnel were deputed on former president's security. However, the Scotland Yard in London refused to comment on the media report.
Speaking to Geo News, Musharraf's spokesman Fawad Chaudhry denied the reports, saying the former president is provided with vehicle and security when required.
Musharraf has been living outside Pakistan, mostly in London, since April 2009. Several cases have been filed against him in Pakistan and courts have also issued notices to him.

The UN report, which was released on April 17, had concluded that Musharraf's government "failed" to protect the ex-premier despite being aware of the serious threats to her life.

The UN-appointed independent panel report also slammed the powerful ISI and the Pakistani police, saying they "deliberately failed" to properly probe 54-year-old Bhutto's murder which could have been averted. PTI HSR RHL ETB ETB 04261833
