`Courageous` should initiate proceedings against Musharraf: Pak CJ
Islamabad: The Chief Justice of Pakistan has said that courageous individuals should come forward and initiate proceedings against former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf.
CJP Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said this while hearing the Adiala jail prisoners and FATA Regulation case, reports the Daily Times.
Advocate Ghulam Nabi appeared on behalf of professor Ibrahim, and advocate Tariq Asad represented Adiala jail prisoners in the court.
Nabi said that FATA regulations were illegal and unconstitutional and they were a blatant breach of human rights. He said that Musharraf, during his tenure, took stern action against the innocent people by launching military operation, during which several innocent people were killed. He said several are still under arrest and no one among them has been presented in the court.
The CJP responded by saying that whosoever has the courage can initiate proceedings against Musharraf.
The former military dictator and APML party chief returned to Pakistan on March 24 after four years of self-imposed exile, to contest the upcoming elections.
