Former President retired Gen Pervez Musharraf on Saturday (Dec 14) challenged the formation of the special court – that has reserved its verdict in the treason trial against him – as “unconstitutional” with the Lahore High Court (LHC).
Earlier, the special court’s three-member bench headed by Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth on Thursday (Dec 5) adjourned the hearing of high treason case against former president General (R) Pervez Musharraf. The verdict on high treason case will be announced on December 17.
In a latest video message from Dubai’s American Hospital, where former president Pervez Musharraf is currently under-treatment, rejected the high treason case against him.
Pervez Musharraf stated that he was rushed to hospital after he lost consciousness. The former president stated that he had fought 10 wars and served the country. “I am very unwell. It has been like this since a while, and I keep visiting the hospital,” he said. “Even my lawyer Salman Safdar is not being heard by the court,” he says. “I have fought wars for Pakistan and served my country for 10 years.”
Earlier, the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday (Nov 27) barred special court to announce verdict on former president Pervez Musharraf’s high treason case today (Nov 27). A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Athar Minallah and comprising Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani heard the case.
