Treason Case: Musharraf likely to be indicted today
ISLAMABAD: Former President and Army Chief General (Retd.) Pervez Musharraf is likely to be indicted on Friday (today) in the treason trial for violating the constitution of Pakistan, ARY News reports from Islamabad.
Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March 2013 but after a year he is likely to be helg guilty for violating the constitution of the country.
The first hearing of the treason case was held on 24th December 2013 but the former Army Chief did not appear in the Special Court, formed by the federal government for the treason case, on security reasons.
However, Pervez Musharraf suffered an alleged “cardiac attack” on 2nd January just minutes before his hearing in the court. He was admitted in the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC).
On 18th February, Musharraf appeared in the court for the first time since his “heart attack” in tough security arrangements.
It should be noted that Special Court has rejected the pleas filed by Musharraf in the treason case.
A three member bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab will hear the proceeding of the case.
Strict security arrangements have been made for the hearing of the treason case. Heavy contingents of police and para-military forces have been deployed on the routes and inside the courts as well.
