PM Imran Khan strongly react against the detailed verdict against former president Pervez Musharraf high treason case
*ISLAMABAD: **PM Imran Khan strongly react against the detailed verdict against former president Pervez Musharraf high treason case.*
Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the special court’s detailed verdict in the former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf treason case is an attempt to create “anarchy” and “unrest” in the country.
The special court convicted Musharraf of high treason and sentenced him to death on Tuesday in an unprecedented trial delayed by the absence of the septuagenarian former military ruler, who has been out of the country since 2016.
“The government will not allow any situation, which creates instability in the country or a clash between institutions, to arise,” said the prime minister while addressing a meeting of the Media Strategy Committee on Thursday.
It was decided in the meeting that the government would file a reference in the Supreme Judicial Council against special court judge Waqar Seth.
The legal team informed the meeting that the sentence – hanging him (Musharraf) on D-Chowk – penned by Justice Seth crossed all legal boundaries.
The legal team termed “unconstitutional”, “illegal” and “inhumane” the detailed verdict of the special court.
