Islamabad: Former Interior Minister and Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior Senator Rehman Malik has decided not to pursue criminal and civil cases against Cynthia Dawn Ritchie after his vindication from the competent court from alleged charges.
He made the announcement after complete exoneration from the “fake, fabricated and malicious” charges of rape by Cynthia Dawn Ritchie. Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senior leader in his tweets publicly announced that he will not pursue the pending criminal and civil cases against her in good faith.
Cynthia Dawn Ritchie had levelled false and fabricated allegations against Senator Rehman Malik soon after he – as Chairman Senate Standing Committee on Interior – took notice on her remarks against Benazir Bhtto on twitter.
All of her allegations were dismissed twice by Justice of Peace, District and Session Court Islamabad and also by the Police. Copies of the judgment have already been made public.
Senator Rehman Malik in his statement stated: “I with humble nature do not claim victory as it is evident that the lady in question being under pressure from inimical elements was forced into levelling these insinuations against me. I therefore, in good faith and moreover, because I honour women and their dignity, regardless of this matter, would not like to pursue this matter further as I have every reason/ proofs to believe that Cynthia Ritchie must have levelled these bogus allegations at the behest of influential elements having nefarious designs to malign me and the top political leadership of our country including first elected lady PM Shaheed Mohtarama Benazir Bhutto.”
He added: “I have decided not to consider for revenge in good faith & I leave this issue to my Allah, to Whom I’m grateful for vindicating my position before my family, friends, the PPP leadership and the parliament.”
