  • Description

    Britain and China have now added their pleas to the growing campaign to avert the death penalty being carried out against former Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. Mr Bhutto has been sentenced to death by the country's military rulers after being convicted on a charge of conspiracy to murder. The former leader has lodges an appeal against the death sentence, and this is due to be heard in Rawalpindi on May the 6th. In the meantime, his allies and supporters are visiting several countries in an effort to build up international condemnation of the rule of General Zia ul_haq, Pakistan's current military leader.

    SYNOPSIS: In London, one of the former Prime Minister's two sons, Mir Murtaza Bhutto, has been campaigning for more pressure to be brought to bear on the Pakistani rulers. But 25-year-old Mir Bhutto, currently studying at Oxford University, says the death sentence could very well be carried out.
