Court Annuls Musharraf’s Right to Defence in High Treason Case

ISLAMABAD: A special court on Wednesday rejected former President Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s plea to postpone hearing on medical grounds and revoked right to defence in high treason case.

A three-member Special Court bench headed by Justice Tahira Safdar heard the adjournment plea filed by Musharraf’s counsel in high treason case.

Advocate Salman Safdar, counsel for Pervez Musharraf, had submitted another plea to adjourn high treason case.

Musharraf’s counsel Salman Safdar told the court that his client could not travel to Pakistan due to his wobbly health condition, and once again requested the court to adjourn the hearing and give him another chance to appear before the court.

The prosecution raised objections over the plea.

The court then adjourned the hearing till June 27.
