ISLAMABAD, Jan 13 � Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari returned home from Dubai early today, hours before a crucial special Parliament session to discuss Supreme Court�s warning that it could act against the President and Prime Minister for failing to reopen high-profile graft cases.
Officials said Zardari had gone to Dubai to attend the wedding of the son of a friend and had returned as scheduled.
Presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar told the media that Zardari had reached Islamabad at 5 am. �President Zardari, who had gone to Dubai Thursday noon on a private visit to attend a wedding, returned to Islamabad in the wee hours of this morning,� he said.
Zardari had triggered widespread speculation about his future when he abruptly travelled to Dubai last month and spent nearly a fortnight there to be treated for a heart condition.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Army�s top commanders have decided to throw their weight behind the Supreme Court in its standoff with the civilian government over the memo scandal and the revival of high-profile graft cases, according to a media report today. � PTI
