Ex Pakistan Military Dictator Musharraf has been awarded the death sentence in high treason case. The Pakistan special court took up the case against Musharraf and conducted numerous proceedings.
On November 19th, the court has completed the trial proceedings in the case against Musharraf for declaring a state emergency on November 3, 2007. On the other side, Musharraf denied the charges saying that they are politically motivated.
After completing his term as Prime Minister in 2008, Musharraf went absconding in the same year and returned to Pakistan in 2013 again. He later left for Dubai claiming medical treatment and has not returned to Pakistan again. The high treason case has been pending against him since December 2013.
As he skipped several court summons, the court had then declared him as an absconder and issued a directive to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to arrest him. Finally, the Pakistan court’s latest judgment has come as a shock to the world and is being termed as a historical one.
