ISLAMABAD – In an interesting development one of the counsels of former president General (rtd) Pervez Musharraf, Rana Ijaz, sought apology from the special court which was hearing high treason trial.
According to the details, Rana Ijaz submitted the unconditinal written apology in the special court on Friday.
The special court banned Rana’s entry in court premises after he had heated arguments with the Justice Faisal Arab. That incident occurred few days back when Ranja Ijaz crossed the dignified limits usually maintained between bench and bar while defending his client Pervez Musharraf.
Interestingly, Rana was not allowed to enter into the special court premises even for submission of his written apology and later the same was submitted through Advocate Kamran Murtuza.
A special court under the supervision of Justice Faisal Arab is currently hearing the high treason trial of former President Pervez Musharraf for his alleged violation of constitution. During the trials the defence and prosecution were found in very heated debates, sometimes over non-issues, with each other.
Until recently, Pervez Musharraf had been successfully dodging the court appearances while his counsels kept trying to challenge the authority of special court to hear this case. However, all of their appeals against special court’s decision in the Supreme Court and Islamabad High Court were rejected.
Musharraf’s counsels also claimed that prosecutor of the case, Advocate Akram Sheikh hold personal vendetta against their client. Responding to which Akram had said that if Musharraf agrees to appear in the court, he would leave the assigned task for the sake of greater good.
