Pervez Musharraf might be only 15 days away from going abroad


WEB DESK – Former President General (rtd) Pervez Musharraf might be just 15 days away from getting licence to fly abroad as Sindh High Court’s each resumed hearing of petition to remove his name from Exit Control List (ECL).

According to the live updates from Karachi correspondents, the attorney general representing the government, Wednesday, sought 15 days time period to prepare his stance in the case.

The lawyer of Musharraf, Barrister Farogh Naseem presented his stance in defence of former president that he needs to visit his seriously ill mother in Sharjah.

Sindh High Court’s judges Justice Azhar and Justice Shahnawaz was hearing the case. The bench accepting the request of attorney general granted the next date of hearing on May 7, 2014. 

Pervez Musharraf moved to Karachi on April 19 where he was staying at his daughter’s home and availing medical facilities at PNS Shifa of Pakistan Navy.

However, a Special Court was constituted in Islamabad which heard the High Treason case against former military strongman.

Musharraf was also summoned by the couple of different courts in three different cases. He was summoned by one Anti-Terrorism Court on April 25 for the hearing of judges detention case. On May 3, he was summoned in Islamabad in Lal Masjid cleric’s murder case. Another ATC in Quetta had summoned him to appear for the hearing of Nawaz Akbar Khan Bugti’s murder.

Musharraf had submitted a plea in the Supreme Court of Pakistan for the removal of his name from ECL.

PakistanTribe reported that Nawaz Sharif only wanted his face saving in the pertaining issue. According to a seniorjournalist and media personality ‘Javed Chaudhry’ that middle way would be removing Musharraf’s name from ECL through a court order.

On April 3, PakistanTribe reported that a bomb went off on the route of the convoy as Musharraf was being shifted from AFIC to his farm house .

Musharraf has been shifted from Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology (AFIC) to Chak Shahzad after three months. He was taaken to hospital on January 2 as he developed a cardiac problem enroute to appear before the special court hearing treason case against him.
