Court rejects ministry’s reply over Musharraf’s departure to Dubai

ISLAMABAD: The Special Court, conducting high treason trial, has rejected interior ministry’s reply over former president Gen. (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s departure to Dubai.

Hearing the high treason trial against former military ruler, the court sought reply from Home Secretary in seven days.

Public Prosecutor Akram Shaikh said Pervez Musharraf was himself responsible for not informing the court about his departure.

On March 31, while hearing the case, the Special Court had expressed anger over Musharraf’s departure to Dubai and asked the public prosecutor why Musharraf’s name was removed from Exit Control List (ECL).

The court had issued show-cause notice to Major Gen. (retd) Rashid Qureshi, guarantor of former president and directed authorities concerned to produce Musharraf on April 19, otherwise the bail plea of the accused will be cancelled.
