ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday sought the travel details of former military dictator General (r) Pervez Musharraf for his return to Pakistan.
A two-member bench comprising Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani and Justice Amir Farooq sought the travel plan as it heard a petition filed by Musharraf’s lawyer challenging the formation of a commission by a special court hearing the high treason case for recording statement of the former military ruler.
During the hearing, the court ordered Musharraf’s legal counsel, Barrister Salman Safdar, to submit the travel details, directing him to travel to Dubai and bring back Musharraf.
Further, Justice Mohsin asked the lawyer to inform the bench about travel record and when Musharraf would be returning, while Justice Farooq remarked that the law regarding an absconder is clear.
The court assured the former president’s lawyer that complete security will be provided to his client.
Barrister Safdar sought more time after which the hearing was adjourned until the third week of December.
