Islamabad: Former President Pervez
Musharraf`s All Pakistan Muslim League party will organise
demonstrations across the country on February 18 to protest
the arrest warrant issued for him recently by a court in
connection with former premier Benazir Bhutto`s assassination.

APML spokesman Fawad Chaudhry, a close aide of Musharraf,
told the media that protests will be organised all major
cities of Pakistan and the US and Canada after Friday prayers.

A public meeting will also be held in Peshawar, he said.

An anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi last week issued an
arrest warrant for Musharraf after investigators named him as
an "absconder" in a charge-sheet for failing to cooperate with
the team probing Bhutto`s assassination in 2007.

Chaudhry said Musharraf is likely to return to Pakistan
this year and will take part in political activities.

Musharraf, who has been living in self-exile in Britain
since early 2009, launched the APML as part of his plans to
return to Pakistan to contest the next general election
scheduled for 2013.
