The court dismissed charges against five alleged Taliban militants accused of being involved in the killing, while two police officers were found guilty of "mishandling the crime scene," becoming the only people to be convicted in the case. And in a country where conspiracy theories continue to envelop the myriad assassinations of its political figures over decades, Bhutto's death is no exception. In 2013 a Pakistani court formally charged Musharraf with Bhutto's killing in an unprecedented move against a former army chief. At the request of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) government that came into power soon after Bhutto's murder, a three-member U.N. team of investigators was dispatched to investigate the killing.
