*ISLAMABAD -**Former President Pervaiz Musharraf reacts over the Special court death penalty sentence.*

* Former military dictator Pervez Musharraf has broken his silence over the special court’s verdict against him, saying that he and his lawyers were not allowed to present a defence during hearings of the high treason case.*

On Tuesday, Musharraf was handed death penalty by a special court hearing the high treason case against him. The court sentenced the former military dictator under Article 6 of the constitution.

In a statement recorded from his hospital bed, Musharraf said he was ready to record his statement to a special commission but his request was ignored.

Terming the verdict against him “suspicious”, the former military dictator said the “supremacy of law” was ignored during hearings of his case from its start till the end.

He said the case against him was actually based on “personal vendetta” and he was targeted by the people on high posts.
