ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Tuesday has said that the stance of government in regards to the special court verdict on treason case against former president Pervez Musharraf will surface after discussion with the legal team.
In a statement, the special assistant said that strategy with respect to the verdict will be made soon after Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan returns to Pakistan from Geneva.
It is pertinent to mention here that special court in Islamabad has sentenced former president and top military official Pervez Musharraf to death in high treason case.
A three-member bench comprising Chief Justice of Peshawar High Court (PHC) Waqar Seth, Justice Nazar Akbar of Sindh High Court (SHC) and Justice Shahid Karim of Lahore High Court (LHC) has announced the verdict that was reserved on December 5.
During the hearing, Justice Seth said that ex-premier has been found guilty of violating the Article 6 of the Constitution by clamping the state of emergency on November 3, 2007.
The verdict was split 2-1 and a detailed verdict is expected to be issued in 48 hours.
The defence lawyer said that Pervez Musharraf, who is currently in Dubai, has been informed about the decision and says he will challenge the special court’s judgment, according to sources.
