Former President Pervaiz Musharraf lands in yet another trouble
ISLAMABAD – Former President Pervaiz Musharraf lands in yet another trouble as a petition seeking completion of trial against former president Pervez Musharraf and announcement of high treason case’s reserved verdict on the decided date has been filed in Supreme Court (SC) today (Tuesday).
The plea, submitted by Lahore High Court (LHC) Bar Association, stated that SC has already given clear instructions to trial court to conclude the case as early as possible. Federal government is creating hurdles for smooth proceedings of the case, it added.
The petition further requested the apex court to issue directives for implementation on its April 2019 judgment. Special court is violating SC’s order by not completing the trial against Pervez Musharraf, it asserted.
The development came after a full bench of LHC heard petitions link reserving verdict of high treason case.
During the hearing, Justice Mazhar Ali Akbar Naqvi said we are receiving information about filing of another petition in federal capital over which, Musharraf’s lawyer Khawaja Tariq Rahim told that interior minister had submitted the plea in Islamabad High Court (IHC).
The court had summoned Attorney General for assistance in the case and directed the authorities to submit summary regarding formation of trial court.
