Court rejects Pervez Musharraf’s request for exemption from appearance
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – An anti-terrorism court on Friday rejected former president Pervez Musharraf’s request for permanent exemption from appearance.
As per reports, the ATC Judge Sohail Ikram heard the case, setting May 25 as the date for Pervez Musharraf to be presented before the court.
The judges detention case is based on an FIR filed against Musharraf in August 2009. The FIR itself is based on a complaint by a lawyer named Chaudhry Aslam. Ghumman called for proceedings against Musharraf for detaining over 60 judges, including Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, after imposing emergency on November 3, 2007.
The case is one of three high-profile cases against Musharraf in Pakistan courts.
