High treason trial against Pervez Musharraf to resume next week

Prime News, International (Islamabad), July 30:- A special court in Pakistan is all set to resume hearing of a high treason case against former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, which may also be a big test for Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, which is likely to form a government, a media report said.

Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief Justice Yawar Ali, who is heading the three-judge special tribunal, will visit Islamabad for three days from July 31 to August 2. The Express Tribune reported that the purpose of his visit is to hear the high treason case lodged against the former president soon after the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) came to power in 2013 for his role in the promulgation of emergency on November 3, 2007.

However, the prosecution team has yet to get any information regarding fixation of the case. The matter was also fixed at the start of this month but the schedule was cancelled because of the LHC top judge’s foreign trip.  (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
