America: Cynthia D. Ritchie accuses leaders of the Pakistan People’s Party of serious sexual misconduct.Report by Director United States.
Cynthia Dawn Ritchie: The incident occured at IM’s house in min enclave 2011 around the OBL incident. I thought it a meeting about my visa but I was given flowers/ a drugged drink. I kept quiet – who in PPP gov’t would help me against PPP IM? Recently they attacked family; I’ve had it. Ready to face any accuser.
And, yes, I did tell someone at the UsEmb in 2011, but due to ‘fluid’ situation and ‘complex’ relations between US and Pakistan, response was less than adequate. I’ve been engaged to a wonderful man who I met in Pakistan. He encouraged me to speak out, so we can move on as a couple.
There is much more. But now I need a few days to rest and be alone with my fiance. I’m tired. I ask the PPP leadership @BBhuttoZardari to tell its people to leave my family alone.
I will be ready to meet any and all investigators, as is required by law, as early as next week. Request privacy at this time.
Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Peoples Party leader Yousaf Raza Gillani has strongly denied the allegations in an interview with the BBC.
