FEDERAL Law and Justice Minister Farooq H. Naek has reportedly said that President Asif Ali Zardari has no money in any Swiss bank. Unless the law minister takes a U-turn, his statement may open a way out of the imbroglio regarding the government’s refusal to write the letter to Swiss authorities as directed by the Supreme Court.

Since according to the law minister, President Zardari has no money in any Swiss bank, it could make matters easy. I suggest a way out. Let President Zardari write a short note in his private capacity to the Swiss authorities concerned to the effect that any money in his name in any account, secret or otherwise in any bank in Switzerland, may be transferred to the Government of Pakistan.

It may save another prime minister from becoming a sacrificial lamb.
