Pervez Musharraf Sentenced to Death in High Treason Case

A three-member special court in Lahore has sentenced former President of Pakistan General (ret.) Pervez Musharraf to death in the high treason case.
The shocking verdict came on Tuesday morning after the Lahore High Court (LHC) referred the case to the special court.
The court comprised of Chief Justice of the Peshawar High Court (PHC) Waqar Seth, Justice Nazar Akbar of the Sindh High Court (SHC), and Justice Shahid Karim of the Lahore High Court (LHC).
In its short order, the court declared that the former president committed treason by suspending the constitution on November 3, 2007.

Case History

The case against the General (retd) Musharraf was filed during the PML-N government in 2013 for imposing the state of emergency on November 3, 2007. He was indicted on March 31, 2014.
However, despite being indicted in the high treason case, the PML-N government allowed Musharraf to leave the country in March 2016 on medical grounds. He has since lived in Dubai.

It is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
