UN Team head Heraldo Munoz is an old Suicide BomberBy A Khokar • Apr 19th, 2010 • Category: Politics • One Response
Heraldo Munoz as a head of independent UN Commission of inquiry in Pakistan carried out investigation of the assassination of Ms Benazir Bhutto. The subject report released last week may be totally biased as the man heading the UNO team to formulate an investigative report is the old Chilian activist who remained pitched against the regime of General Augusto Pinochet, the Military Dictator who reportedly came in power through a CIA subscribed Coup of 9/11/1973.
Heraldo Munoz is an author also and he says in his book; ‘The Dictator’s Shadow; Life Under Augusto Pinochet’ that he may be the first Suicide bomber f rom Chile that at the time of coup as a member of underground forces was always ready to sacrifice his life. He has been looking for the targets to strike with the belt full of detonators tied to his waist and a .32 Calibre gun till he was caught and later tortured for fighting for the continuation of old Communist Regime. He managed to escape from Chile and fled to US. He says that during torture his fingers were broken and he still got one of his finger crooked.
While he conducted the investigation in Pakistan under the perception that President Pervez Musharraf also came in power through a military coup in 1999; and he being the old radical activist who has been fighting against General Augusto Pinochet in his own country and remained in exile like Taliban of TTP; his report can certainly be said as biased.
