Prosecution seeks rejection of medical board report

ISLAMABAD: Prosecution lawyer Akram Shaikh during the high treason hearing against former president Pervez Musharraf highlighted the objections over the medical report of Musharraf, ARY News reported on Thursday. 

In his arguments before the three-member bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab, Akram Shaikh said the medical board instead of complying the court orders submitted a report based on the wishes of the former president. The report didn't answer the three questions asked by the court, the government counsel said. 

"During last 28 days in the hospital no ECG or enzyme tests conducted," the counsel stated. How a man who could not appear for 15 minutes before the court, will travel to London and USA for nine hours and 18 hours respectively, he asked. 

Prosecution counsel pleaded to the court to reject the medical report or summon the head of the medical board for cross-examination. 

The court earlier rejected a request of the defence for adjournment of the case.
