`Pervez Musharraf being harassed, treated like convict`
Islamabad: The Lahore High Court has deferred the hearing of a petition against alleged harassment of former president Gen (retired) Pervez Musharraf till June 10.
The court has given him a chance of fair trial as required by the law.
According to the Daily Times, the court asked petitioner, Barrister Javed Iqbal Jaffrey, to defend himself against the allegations.
Jaffrey alleged that Musharraf was being subjected to harassment by the state and was treated like a convict even though he was just an under trial prisoner.
He said every accused had the fundamental right of being accorded a fair trial and it could not be usurped in any case.
He requested that the government should be directed to give complete protection to Musharraf and treat him in accordance with law, the report added.
