Musharraf Trial

ISLAMABAD – Finally the legal associates of Pervez Musharraf approached the door of Supreme Court to lift the travel ban and allowing him to visit his ailing mother in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates (UAE).

According to the correspondents of court in Islamabad, a constitutional petition was submitted with the registrar of the Supreme Court of Pakistan on Thursday which cited the violation of basic human rights for not allowing Musharraf to travel freely.

The petition was submitted by the Advocate Shah Jehan. Interior Ministry and federal government were made the respondents on this constitutional petition.

Petitioner pleaded that Musharraf was a former president and chief of the armed forces and should be allowed to visit his ailing mother in Dubai. It was also noted in the petition that Musharraf’s basic right of movement was being affected due to the travel restriction as according to basic human rights a person could move freely.

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