ISLAMABAD: The special court has fixed objections regarding attachment of former president Pervez Musharraf’s property in high treason case for hearing on March 11, sources said.
The objections are jointly filed by Musharraf’s wife Sehba Musharraf, daughter Ayla Raza and Huma Khaishgi, the deceased sister of Sehba and shareholder of property.
On July 19, 2016, a three-member bench comprising of Justice Tahira Safdar and Justice Yawar Ali and led by then Peshawar High Court (PHC) chief justice (CJ) Mazhar Alam Miankhel had attached Musharraf’s moveable and immovable property in the high treason case.
Now after the elevation of Miankhel to the Supreme Court, the special court will be headed by PHC CJ Yahya Afridi.
The objections, filed by Musharraf’s family through their counsel Faisal Chaudhry had stated that the immovable properties of Musharraf had been gifted to his wife and daughter before the litigation of high treason case and therefore these were owned by them.
