Zardari went to Dubai because of life threats: Gilani

Islamabad, December 15
Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that President Asif Ali Zardari was forced to go to Dubai for medical treatment because of "threats" to his life.
The government and the President's family convinced Zardari to go to Dubai for treatment because there was a risk he would be attacked if he was admitted to a Pakistani hospital, Gilani said while speaking in the Senate or upper house of parliament yesterday.

"He was ill, he feared life threats in Pakistani hospitals - that was the reason he did not want to go to any hospital of Pakistan," Gilani said.

"We persuaded him, we convinced him, his family convinced him to go to Dubai," he said.

Zardari, 56, was admitted to the American Hospital in Dubai on December 6 to be treated for a heart condition and was discharged yesterday. PTI
