`Musharraf will leave Pak before new govt takes charge`
Lahore: Former Pakistan army chief and president Pervez Musharraf, who is being tried in a number of cases of serious nature and detained at his farmhouse sub-jail, will leave the country before the swearing-in of the new government, according to PML-Z chief and MNA-elect Ijazul Haq.
Haq said this while addressing a press conference in Lahore.
In reply to a question about Musharraf`s future, he said the former military dictator would leave the country before the new government takes charge in Islamabad, reports The Dawn.
Musharraf is facing legal cases, including treason charges for imposing emergency rule, the 2007 assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto and the killing of Baloch leader Nawab Akbar Bugti in 2006.
Musharraf , who ruled Pakistan from 1999 to 2008, denied all charges and said he would defend himself in courts. He had resigned in August 2008 to avoid impeachment by the parliament and went into exile since then.
He returned to Pakistan on March 24 after over four years of self-imposed exile in London and Dubai to take part in the May 11 general elections for his All Pakistan Muslim League party. But he was disqualified by the Election Commission of Pakistan for contesting the elections.
