Pak special court to try Musharraf for treason in December
Islamabad – The Pakistani government has announced that a special court will start functioning in the first week of December for the trial of former President General Pervez Musharraf on treason charges.
The federal government issued a notification regarding appointment of Akram Sheikh as special prosecutor in the case, the Daily Times reports.
Meanwhile, Musharraf was reportedly contacting senior lawyers to evolve a strategy for his case.
Earlier, the Law Ministry on November 18 requested the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) to propose the names of judges for the special court, and a panel of three judges headed by Justice Faisal Arab of the Sindh High Court was elected for the case.
However, the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) inquiry committee has so far failed to collect any concrete evidence against Musharraf.
