Pak court issues summons to Attorney General in Musharraf case
Lahore: A Pakistani court on Tuesday summoned
Attorney General Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq to present the federal
authorities` stance on a petition demanding the removal of
former President Pervez Musharraf`s name from all government
A bench of the Lahore High Court issued the summons in
response to the petition filed by former president Rafiq
Tarar, who asked the court to direct authorities to delete all
orders issued by Musharraf from government documents.
He argued that Musharraf had not been elected through
proper Constitutional means.
The court summoned the Attorney General to clarify the
government`s stance at the next hearing on May 18.
Musharraf, who quit as President in 2008, has been
living in self-exile in Britain.
An anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi has issued an
arrest warrant for him after investigators alleged he was not
cooperating in the probe into the 2007 assassination of former
premier Benazir Bhutto.
