Islamabad: Former Pakistani president General (retired) Pervez Musharraf is hopeful that his ordeal will end in few weeks time, his counsel barrister has said.

Salman Safdar told Dawn.com on Wednesday that Musharraf also hoped that he will be granted bail in all the three cases.

According to Dawn News, Musharraf is currently under house arrest at his Islamabad farm house after cancellation of bail in the judges' detention case.

His bail petition in the Benazir Bhutto murder case has also been dismissed by a division bench of the Lahore High Court's Rawalpindi registry.

Recalling his meeting with the former military strongman, his counsel said that Musharraf is very confident and took active part in discussions regarding the cases.

Safdar said that quality of evidence in these cases cannot stand before any court of law if fair investigation is done and justice is delivered to Musharraf.

He added that the Interpol had already termed the evidence against Musharraf insufficient when the previous government issued red-warrants against him when he was out of the country.

He said that he was sure that Musharraf's ordeal will end in few weeks and he will be able to pursue his political career, denying reports that the former president wanted to leave the country, the report added.
