Pervez Musharraf diverted to AFIC on Chaudhry Nisar's orders: Defence

ISLAMABAD: Special Court hearing treason charges against former president Pervez Musharraf on Friday reserved its ruling over calling him in the court and confiscation of security, ARY News reported. 

Three-member bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab will announce its decision this evening. 

Defence lawyer Anwar Mansoor asked the court to decide about the jurisdiction of the special court, which has been challenged by the defence in a petition. 

Anwar Mansoor argued that the vehicle of Pervez Musharraf was diverted to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC) on directives of the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan. "We have wireless records and the court can see it," the counsel added. 

Justice Faisal Arab in his remarks during the court proceedings warned that if the former president fail to appear before the court, his non-bailable warrants will be issued. 

Barrister Saif, a counsel of Pervez Musharraf, assured the bench that the former president will appear before the court in the next hearing of the case on February 18.
