A special court decided on Monday to hear a high treason case against former president Pervez Musharraf on a daily basis starting from October 9. The two-bench special court headed by Lahore High Court (LHC) Chief Justice Yawar Ali and comprising Sindh High Court (SHC) Justice Nazar Akbar was hearing the high treason case against Musharraf. “This is the last time we are adjourning the case as it has to be taken to a logical conclusion,” Justice Yawar remarked. Justice Yawar said that senior prosecutor Naseeruddin Khan Nayyar would present arguments as the court’s legal adviser. All statements have been recorded in the case, he observed. Justice Yawar also sought steps being taken for Musharraf’s appearance before the bench. A representative of the Interior Ministry said, “A request was made for Musharraf’s arrest through Interpol.” Justice Yawar directed the Ministry of Interior to submit a written statement on whether Musharraf could be presented before the court and adjourned the hearing till October 9.
