Former President Pervaiz Musharraf rushed to Dubai hospital in serious emergency

KARACHI: Former President Pervaiz Musharraf rushed to Dubai hospital in serious emergency.

Musharraf was admitted on Monday to a hospital in Dubai after he developed “heart- and blood pressure-related” complications, his party sources confirmed.

Earlier in the day television channels showed footage of the former president being taken to the Dubai American Hospital on a stretcher, citing “emergency treatment requirement” which was later confirmed by sources in his All Pakistan Muslim League.

“He has some serious health issues and lately had been complaining of some pain in the chest, and anxiety,” said the party’s spokesman.

“The doctors visited him at his place of stay and recommended immediate admission to avoid any further complications.

The former president has undergone a few tests which will help determine the state of his health,” he said.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) last week set aside an order of the special court that a final verdict in Gen Musharraf’s high treason case would be announced on Nov 28, giving another opportunity to the former army chief for his defence and to the federal government to address loopholes, if any, in the prosecution.
