ISLAMABAD – The lead lawyer who is defending former President General (rtd) Pervez Musharraf has finally fired back at the prosecutor for deliberately not providing the required documents that could be the counter evidence against all allegations.

Barrister Farogh Naseem was defending Musharraf on Wednesday in the Special Court when he said that its beyond understanding that why these documents were in hiding.

“All those who received the emergency declaration circular and remained silent were part of the process,” he added.

Naseem also added that 110 judges who took oath under Provisional Constitutional Ordinance (PCO) must be included as accused. “Ministry of Law had issued a circular declaring appointment of judges under PCO. Similarly, the circular of declaring emergency was also issued openly,” Naseem said further.

Farogh Naseem also informed the Special Court that he might have to visit London for an important task. Its pertinent to mention here that Farogh Naseem is the leader of Mutahidda Qaumi Movement (MQM) and always lead the constitutional petitions of his party. He might be called on to London for legal advise in the matters related to Altaf Hussain’s arrest.

PakistanTribe reported on June 3 that Advocate Akram Sheikh, lead prosecutor, submitted the missing documents in the Special Court on Tuesday as Justice Faisal Arab resumed the hearing.

The missing documents included five statements and proceeding of at least four cabinet meetings – two before the imposition of 3rd November, 2007 emergency and other two after the emergency.
