Prime Minister Imran Khan will chair a meeting of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) core committee in which the special Court’s verdict awarding death penalty to Former President Pervez Musharraf in high treason case will be discussed.
The meeting will be held in Bani Gala while the members of the core committee, including the federal ministers, will be present at the meeting. Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar and Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bazdar have also been summoned for the emergency meeting.
A day earlier,the Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Anwar Mansoor Khan said on Tuesday that a convict was sent abroad for treatment while an ill man was being called here to give statement.
“This is the same as completely ignoring someone’s basic right,” the AG said. “A person who is unwell is told that he must come here [Pakistan] to record his statement while a person who is not unwell was allowed to go abroad,” the AG said in a thinly veiled reference to former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif getting permission to go to Great Britain for medical treatment.
“A wrong decision must be called wrong,” Anwar Mansoor said. He clarified that the application given earlier was handed in eighteen months ago which requested that everyone involved in the matter, including Justice Dogar, be called in by the court. “But that application was dismissed,” the AG said.
A three-member bench of the special court on Tuesday (Dec 17) has announced death sentence to former President Pervez Musharraf in high Treason case with 2-1 split . The bench comprising Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Waqar Ahmad Seth, Justice Nazar Akbar of the Sindh High Court (SHC) and Justice Shahid Karim of the LHC resumed the hearing of the high treason case.
