New developments reported from LHC in former President Pervaiz Musharraf death penalty verdict case

ISLAMABAD - New developments reported from Lahore High Court in former President Pervaiz Musharraf death penalty verdict case.

The Lahore High Court on Tuesday constituted a three-member full bench to hear a petition filed by former military ruler retired Gen Pervez Musharraf.

Musharraf had challenged the trial against him and formation of a special court that sentenced him to death earlier this month.

Justice Mazahir Ali Akbar Naqvi will chair the bench while Justice Amir Bhatti and Justice Masood Jahangir will be a part of it.

The newly constituted bench will initiate hearing of the petition on January 9, 2020.

Earlier this month Musharraf had filed an application in the LHC, urging it to halt the special court from sentencing him in absentia. In the petition, the former dictator had challenged the formation of the special court holding his trial under charges of high treason and legal flaws committed in the procedure.
