Mr. Abbas is the main accused in the three assassination attempts on Mr. Sulemani and "a plot to kill my entire family in a systematic way”.
Zaffar is a member of the influential "Abbas Brothers". His eldest brother is a serving general – Maj-Gen. Athar Abbas – and is the chief spokesperson of the Pakistan Army. Mazhar Abbas is an executive at the ARY TV and a leader of the Pakistan Federal Union of Journalists (PFUJ) while Azhar Abbas is reportedly the highest paid employee of Geo TV. Mrs. Zaffar runs an NGO – Uks network – in Islamabad.
“I’ve nothing with his (Zaffar’s) family,” Mr. Sulemani says, “but I want to bring him along with other accused to justice. This is what I had requested to the federal government.”
Mr. Sulemani is perturbed by the action of the Dawn Media Group, which has stopped his salary and has appointed a man accused of criminal charges as editor of the newspaper, founded by Mr. M.A. Jinnah. He seeks protection as he is living in solitary confinement for the last over six months.
“I need immediate access to the Supreme Court of Pakistan, I’m fully convinced of getting justice,” he adds.
