Court rejects Musharraf plea to adjourn treason case

Court rejects Musharraf plea to adjourn treason case

Islamabad, June 12 (UNI) A Special court on Wednesday rejected former Pakistan Army General Pervez Musharraf’s plea to adjourn the hearing of a high treason case against him.

A three-judge bench headed by Justice Tahira Safdar also cancelled the right of defence of former General due to his repeated non-appearance before the court and decided to conclude the trial even in his absence.

During the proceedings, Musharraf's lawyer Salman Safdar said that the former military dictator was not physically or mentally capable of returning the country.

Safdar told the media that he had presented medical and photographic evidence in court so that the judges could get an idea of Musharraf's condition.

He said that Musharraf had stayed in the country for three to four years but the trial was not completed.

Musharraf left for Dubai in 2016 after his name was removed from the Exit Control List.
