High treason case: Musharraf challenged the verdict of special court in SC

By

Islamabad: Former president and top military official Musharraf challenged the verdict of special court to sentence him to death in Supreme Court in High Treason case.

According to the details, the former president declared that the special court had violated the constitution in his betrayal process, so the decision must be declared invalid.

LHC declares formation of special court ‘unconstitutional’

Previously, the Lahore High Court (LHC) canceled the creation of a special court that sentenced the former president and senior military officer Pervez Musharraf to death in a treason.

During the proceedings, the court withdrew section 4 of the Criminal Law Amendment Act (Special Courts) 1976 and ruled that betrayal proceedings against the former president were not conducted in accordance with legal requirements.

Musharraf has filed a petition against the creation of a special court

Pervez Musharraf has filed a petition with the LHC and asked to suspend the ruling of the special court because it is contrary to articles 10-A, 4, 5, 10 and 10-A of the Constitution article. He also asked the court to suspend the ruling of the special court until a judgment on his confession was made.

Upon hearing the complaint, the court expressed its dissatisfaction with Musharraf’s lawyer and asked whether Musharraf had carefully read the case and put forward an argument in this regard, saying that the case was not complicated because the establishment of a special court was illegal.

He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif filed a false lawsuit against Pervez Musharraf for personal resentment.

Judge Mazhar Ali Akbar said the court of first instance had sued the suspect in the case under that article. Additional Attorney General Ishtiaq A Khan said in response to the judge that the charge was charged with imposing a state of emergency in the country, thereby violating the constitution.
