Her tweet against slain Pakistani prime minister Benazir Bhutto set off a war of words between members of Ms. Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Ritchie.

Ritchie is said to have then set about accusing PPP leader and former Interior Minister Rehman Malik, of raping her and the PPP’s former Pakistani prime minister Yousuf Raza Gillani and distinguished PPP leader Makhdoom Shahabuddin of manhandling her.

She is also reported to have written to the FIA explaining her position earlier, explaining that she is a freelancer, pays taxes to the FBR and reports her income to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the USA. She said she was not on “government payroll” but took projects (such as KP Dept of Archaeology/Engro/and some cleared NGOS) as matters of personal and professional interest, adding that she has been living and working in Pakistan for the last 10 years or so.
