The UN commission set up to investigate the assassination of Pakistani former prime minister Benazir Bhutto warned Friday it was limited to fact-finding and would not point to “smoking guns”.

“Let me reiterate that if you think that there will be smoking guns in terms of names, our report is not that and will not be that,” Heraldo Munoz, head of the three-member UN commission, told a press conference in Islamabad.

“The mandate does not include a criminal investigation,” confirmed Munoz, flanked by Indonesia’s Marzuki Darusman and Ireland’s Peter Fitzgerald at their first public appearance in Pakistan since opening a six-month inquiry.


Bhutto, the first woman to become prime minister of a Muslim country, was killed on December 27, 2007 in a gun and suicide attack after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi, a garrison city near the capital Islamabad.

The government called for a UN inquiry after Bhutto’s party won a general election in February 2008 with her supporters angered by conflicting accounts of how she died and who was responsible.
