The special court will issue a detailed verdict of the high treason case against former president Pervez Musharraf today at 12 pm.
Earlier on Wednesday, the special court had handed death sentence to Musharraf for imposing a state of emergency on November 3, 2007.
The short verdict stated that the court had found the former president guilty of high treason according to Article 6 of the Constitution of Pakistan .
It was a majority verdict, with two of the three judges giving the decision against Musharraf. SHC's Justice Akbar had dissented from the verdict.
On Tuesday, Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the special court verdict in the Pervez Musharraf treason case has been received with “a lot of pain and anguish within the rank and file of Pakistan armed forces”.
The incumbent government had also expressed its reservations over the verdict, saying the requirements for a fair trial under Article 10-A were not fulfilled in the case.
