Heraldo Munoz is the head of independent UN Commission of inquiry who carried out the investigation of the assassination of Ms Benazir Bhutto. The subject report may be totally biased as the man heading the UNO team to formulate an investigative report is the old Chile activist who remained pitched against the regime of General Augusto Pinochet, the Military Dictator who happened to came in power through a CIA subscribed Coup of 9/11/ 1973.
Heraldo Munoz says in his book; The Dictator’s Shadow; Life Under Augusto Pinochet’ that he may the first Suicide bomber of Chile that at the time of coup as a member of underground forces 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 Chile and fled to US. He says that during torture his fingers were broken and he has stiil got his one of the finger as crooked.
While he was conducting the investigation in Pakistan under the perception that President Pervez Musharraf came in power through a military coup in 1999; and he being the old radical activist who has been fighting against General Augusto Pinochet; his report can certainly be said as biased.
