ISLAMABAD: Former President Pervaiz Musharraf makes a new move over the High Treason case.
Former president Pervez Musharraf has filed a petition in Lahore High Court (LHC) challenging the special court’s decision to reserve its verdict of high treason case against him.
Musharraf in his petition said that the special court has reserved the judgment of the case on November 19 without hearing his stance.
The former president has made the federal government, Federal Ministry of Law and Justice, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the Registrar Special Court link parties in his petition.
“I am ailing and staying in foreign country for medical treatment,” the petitioner said.
“I could not be able to present my stance in the special court due to my illness,” he further said.
The former president pleaded for revision of the case as per the judgments of the Supreme Court and suspension of the special court’s decision about reserving the verdict in the high treason case against him.
Musharraf also sought the court order for postponement of the hearing of the case till he recovers to health.
