Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf on Saturday challenged his treason trial by the special court in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).
Musharraf’s counsel Dr Khalid Ranjha filed a petition in IHC, in which he questioned the Special court’s authorities. He pleaded that Pervez Musharraf imposed emergency in Army uniform, and therefore, he could only be tried in a military court under the Army Act.
He further blamed that trying Musharraf under Article 6 showed the malicious intent and political agenda on the PML-N government.
The advocate also prayed that the emergency imposed on November 3 2007, was not an individual step, and therefore, Musharraf could not alone be held responsible.
