While hearing the judges detention case today (Friday), an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad expressed resentment after it found that latest medical certificate submitted by former president Pervez Musharraf is ‘fake’.
During the case hearing, police submitted a report, stating that the accused could not be arrested despite issuance of non-bailable warrant against him. ATC Judge Sohail Ikram stated that Musharraf went abroad in March and medical certificate submitted in the court is of April 6th.
On this, Musharraf’s lawyer told court that his client will appear in court if his doctors allow him and adequate security is ensured for him.
Meanwhile, while maintaining the non-bailable arrest warrant, the court ordered police to arrest and present Musharraf till May 20.
On March 18, the former military ruler, who is facing multiple charges including treason and murder over the assassination of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, arrived in Dubai for what his lawyers said was urgent medical treatment after a three-year travel ban was lifted.
