Kasuri rules out Musharraf’s appearance in court after Kutcheri blasts


Eminent lawyer and counsel of former president general (R) Pervez Musharraf in treason case, Ahmed Raza Kasuri said on Monday that Musharraf cannot appear in the special court in a situation where courts are being attacked by the terrorists in the federal capital.

Talking to reporters, Kasuri said nothing was safe if the courts are attacked like this. In these circumstances, he said Musharraf can’t appear in the special court.

Kasuri said Musharraf’s legal team would convince the special court that the country’s courts were not safe and it would be extremely dangerous to present Musharraf in the court, for the lawyers and the judges as well.

He said if the Taliban have denied involvement in the Islamabad court blasts, the forces involved in such attacks should be unmasked.
