ISLAMABAD: A lawyer representing Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf said the retired general would not make a scheduled appearance at his treason trial because of an ongoing illness.
The 70-year-old was rushed to a military hospital on Thursday after developing what a police official called a “heart problem” while being taken to hear treason charges against him at a special tribunal.
“Everyone is aware of his sickness. The whole world knows that he is in the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) and the court also knows that,” lawyer Ahmed Raza Kasuri said.
“We just have to make an oral request in the court that since he is not well, his presence should be dispensed with,” Kasuri said. — AFP
