23 Mar 2018

Pakistan's former dictator General (retd) Pervez Musharraf, who has to appear before a special Pakistani court in a high treason case, is likely to return from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) next month, a leader of Pakistan Awami Ittehad has said. The 74-year-old retired general has been living in Dubai since last year when he was allowed to leave Pakistan on the pretext of medical treatment. The former military ruler was indicted in March, 2014 on treason charges for imposing emergency in the country which led to the confinement of a number of superior court judges in their houses and sacking of over 100 judges.
