*ISLAMABAD – **New developments Reported in Supreme Court over former President Pervaiz Musharraf case.*
*The Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear former president Pervez Musharraf’s plea against objections of the Registrar Office. *Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed will hear the appeal in his chamber.
Earlier on January 16, former president Pervez Musharraf had challenged the verdict of the special court in the Supreme Court.
Pervez Musharraf, in the 65-page appeal filed through Salman Safdar advocate, appealed to court to declare the verdict of the special court null and void. “The constitution was violated six times while completing the trial of the high treason case,” he contended.
He stated that he had filed the appeal in the stipulated period so that the murder of justice should not be committed. “I am not satisfied with the verdict of the special court delivered on December 17,” he said.
The petitioner stated that he had not been given the right to fair trial. “The formation of the special court is also unconstitutional.
The approval for the treason case was not sought from the cabinet. Moreover, the special court did not gave me an opportunity to record the statement,” he said.
