Musharraf challenges lifetime ban verdict in SC
Islamabad: Former Pakistan president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has challenged his disqualification for life in holding a public office in the Supreme Court.
He also submitted an appeal in the apex court for his release in the judges` detention case.
According to the Daily Times, Musharraf filed these two appeals in the Supreme Court through his lawyer Ilyas Siddiqui.
The Peshawar High Court (PHC) in April this year placed a lifetime ban on him for contesting elections.
In the appeal, Musharraf`s lawyer said there is no clause in the constitution regarding life ban, adding that the PHC exceeded its powers by banning him for life from holding any public office, the report added.
