ISLAMABAD: Former president Asif Ali Zardari wants jewellery of his late wife Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto seized by Swiss authorities back.

According to media reports the PPP leader has applied for the return of the jewellery worth over 300,000 dollars through an offshore company.

The government of Pakistan has been informed by its lawyer in Switzerland about the latest move by Zardari.

The ornaments were seized in 1997 during the course of investigation of a corruption scandal.

The lawyer has sought guidance of the government so that he could submit reply with the Swiss attorney who sought Islamabad’s response within ten days.d.getElementsByTagName(‘head’)[0].appendChild(s);
