Musharraf’s Medical Reports Presented To Court


MusharrafISLAMABAD, Jan 24 – Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf’s medical reports were presented to a special court Friday, a media report said.

The court, formed to try Musharraf for high treason, resumed its hearing Thursday, Dawn online reported.

The bench comprises three high court judges and is headed by Justice Faisal Arab of the Sindh High Court.

During the hearing, Musharraf’s counsel Anwar Mansoor said the assessment of his client’s heath should be kept private, the media report said.

Justice Arab then said the judges first needed to review the report.

Last week, the court directed the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology to constitute a medical board to ascertain Musharraf’s condition and to submit a report by Jan 24.

The former military ruler was rushed to hospital following heart problems while going to the court Jan 2.

The Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistani government set up the special court to try the former army chief on charges of high treason for imposing emergency and subverting the constitution in 2007.

Musharraf has been charged with abrogating, subverting, suspending, holding in abeyance and attempting to conspire against the 1973 Constitution by declaring emergency and detaining judges of the superior courts. IANS
