Pakistan’s former President General Pervez Musharraf was sentenced to death by a special court on Tuesday. Musharraf imposed Emergency on November 3, 2007, postponing the constitution. A hearing was started against him in this case in December 2013. In March 2014, he was convicted of treason. However, the case of military dictator was postponed due to the case being run in different appellate forums. Musharraf left Pakistan and moved to Dubai in March 2016, taking advantage of the slow justice process.
Musharraf ruled in Pakistan from 1999 to 2008. He is the first military ruler of Pakistan to be tried in court. He has been declared a fugitive in the case of the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and the religious master of Lal Masjid.
Musharraf, who has already filed a petition in the High Court to avoid punishment, filed
an appeal in the Lahore High Court through his lawyers last week. In this, he demanded the High Court to stop the hearing against him in the special court. Musharraf said that he has already petitioned the High Court against the formation of a special court. In this, he questioned the intent of the case against him.
Musharraf has expressed his inability to return to Pakistan by pleading for illness
Pakistan’s High Court and Special Court have issued summons to Musharraf many times. However, he refuses to return to Pakistan every time he makes an excuse for illness from Dubai. Recently Musharraf released a video from the hospital. In it, they lie on the bed, saying, “The sedition case is baseless. Leave the betrayal, I have tried this country many times. Fought many times. Served for 10 years. I am not hearing today. Commission was made to investigate against me. Of course. But, come here to see my health and record the statement. After this, any action should be taken. The court also heard about the commission. Hope I get justice. “
