SC to hear Musharraf case on day-to-day basis


The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday made clear that judgment in Pervaiz Musharraf’s treason case was not reserved and the case would be heard on a day-to-day basis in a free and fair manner.
A three-member bench comprising Justice Jawwad S Khawaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Ijaz Afzal Khan, during hearing of the treason case against Musharraf, cleared the ambiguity that had been created following reports in some sections of media that the judgment in the case had been reserved.
Justice Khawaja said the bench would proceed with the case on a day-to-day basis and would like to provide equal opportunity to all litigants in the case to argue their stance.
During the course of proceedings, Musharraf’s counsel Malik Qamar Afzal wished to make oral submissions. However, the bench directed him to file a written submission in a formal application.
Later, the bench was informed that Attorney General Munir A Malik was busy in a case before a bench headed by the chief justice and thus would not be available during the course of the day. The case was hence adjourned until July 3.
