Former Pervez Musharraf says the treason case against him is baseless. I protected the country for 10 years, he said in a statement recorded from his hospital bed in Dubai.
I fought wars for the country, he said. But the court isn’t listening to my lawyer, Salman Safdar, or letting me have a say, he added.
In my opinion, this case is completely baseless, he said.
He said it was unfair that he was not being given a chance to speak. The commission should come here and I’ll give my statement, he said.
It can come here, listen to me and see for itself how sick I am, said the former president.
He urged that the court listen to the commission and his lawyer. I am hopeful that I will get justice from the court, he said.
