Pak court notice to Musharraf in `treason` case
Lahore: A Pakistani court has issued notice to Pervez Musharraf on a petition seeking his presence in court linked to a case in which the former military dictator has been accused of committing high treason by imposing emergency in 2007.
A single-judge bench of the Lahore high court issued the notice on Friday after a petitioner moved the application seeking directions to ensure the former President`s presence in court for the hearing of a case in which Musharraf has been accused of committing high treason by imposing emergency in 2007.
The petitioner submitted Musharraf`s postal address in London and requested the court to direct authorities to approach Interpol to obtain a Red Corner Notice against him.
Musharraf has been living in self-exile in Britain since he left Pakistan in April last year.
The petitioner also requested the High Court to declare that the federal government or any Pakistani citizen could move the judiciary for registration of a case of high treason against Musharraf.
After issuing the notice, Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed scheduled the next hearing for November 10.
The petitioner, Ilamuddin Ghazi, has levelled 15 allegations of different nature against the former military dictator.
He alleged that Musharraf had dissolved an elected parliament without "any cogent reasons just to save his own skin".
