Islamabad [Pakistan]: Former Pakistan president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf was on Monday admitted to a hospital in Dubai due to serious health issues.
As per medical reports, Musharraf is suffering from cardiac problem and having blood pressure issue, Pakistan Today reported.
Self-imposed exile Since 2016, Musharraf has been living in a self-imposed exile in Dubai for “seeking medical treatment” and has not returned to the country since. He is wanted by authorities in connection to the high treason case filed against him.
Last month, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) stopped the special court from announcing the verdict in the matter. The order came before a special court was scheduled to announce the verdict on the basis of the available record.
The IHC was hearing a petition filed by the Pakistan government seeking an adjournment of the verdict’s announcement. A similar petition was also filed by Musharraf in the Lahore High Court.
The court has also directed the government to notify a new prosecutor or a team of prosecution in the treason case by December 5. It has also asked the special court to fix a date “for affording a reasonable opportunity of hearing” to the notified prosecutor or prosecution team as well as the counsel appointed for Musharraf.
