Court reserves verdict on judges’ bias over Musharraf’s treason trial



The special court on Wednesday reserved the decision over the issue of biased judges in the hearing of a treason trial against former president Pervez Musharraf.

The bias of the two judges of the three-member bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab was brought to notice of the court by Musharraf’s counsel Anwar Mansoor.

During the hearing, Justice Arab remarked that the court would formulate the guiding principle, as on what reasons the judges should dissociate themselves from the hearing.

As Mansoor completed his arguments over the issue, the court reserved its ruling and adjourned the hearing until Friday.
