Last Updated: Friday, July 31, 2009 - 11:38

Islamabad: Pakistan`s Supreme Court will
on Friday pronounce judgement in the case challenging the
decisions of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf to impose
emergency in 2007 and his actions in sacking dozens of judges.

The arguments in the case were completed earlier today
but the 14-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar M
Chaudhary fixed 3 p.m. (local time) to give its ruling after
the court broke up for customary Friday prayers, said lawyers,
who argued in the case.

Musharraf, the former military dictator who is now in
London, defied summons and did not attend the court`s
proceedings. Neither was he represented by his counsel in the
court.
