Islamabad: An Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) in Pakistan has said that the federal government does not require any court permission to make the investigation report and judicial proceedings into the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, public.

Earlier, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had moved an application on the directives of the government seeking court permission to make public the investigation report and judicial proceedings of the Bhutto murder case, reports The News.

The plea stated that the people were concerned over delay in verdict into the assassination of Bhutto despite the lapse of five years. It further said that the government wanted to release the joint interrogation report and proceedings of trial court for the public.

ATC judge Habibur Rehman disposed of the application ruling that the government didn't need any permission in this regard.
