Pervez Musharraf passes away

Former Pakistan president and Army chief Parvez Musharraf passed away in Dubai on Friday.

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) – Pakistan’s government is seeking to remove the leader of a three-judge panel that sentenced former military ruler Pervez Musharraf to death on charges of treason and added a rider about his corpse, Law Minister Farogh Naseem said on Thursday.

The judge, Waqar Ahmad Seth, had violated judicial conduct by issuing the bizarre order that Musharraf’s body should hang in public if he dies before his execution.

The federal government had decided to approach the Supreme Judicial council. “Our plea is that such a judge has got no authority to be a judge of any high court or the supreme court,” he said. “He is unfit.”

The court sentenced Musharraf to death on Tuesday after finding him guilty of high treason for subverting the constitution in 2007.

What’s going on with the case?

In November 2007, Gen Musharraf suspended the constitution and forced crisis rule – a move that started fights. He surrendered in 2008 to keep away from the danger of denunciation.


At the point when Nawaz Sharif – an old opponent whom he ousted in 1999 upset – was chosen top state leader in 2013, he started a treachery preliminary against Gen Musharraf and in Walk 2014 the previous general was charged for high conspiracy.


Gen Musharraf contended the case was politically propelled and that the moves he made in 2007 were concurred by the public authority and bureau. In any case, his contentions were turned somewhere around the courts and he was blamed for acting unlawfully.


As indicated by the Pakistani constitution, anybody sentenced for high injustice could confront capital punishment. Gen Musharraf ventured out to Dubai in 2016 after a movement boycott was lifted and he has wouldn’t show up under the watchful eye of the court, notwithstanding numerous orders.

The three-part seat had held its decision in the long-running case last month, yet was halted from reporting it by a request recorded by the central government to the Islamabad High Court.

For what reason is it critical?

The incrimination of Gen Musharraf in 2014 for treachery was an exceptionally huge second in a nation where the military has held influence for a lot of its free history.

A considerable lot of Pakistan’s military bosses have either managed the country straightforwardly after upsets, as Gen Musharraf did, or used huge impact over policymaking during times of regular citizen rule.

Yet, Gen Musharraf was the main armed force boss to be accused of such wrongdoing and the strong military has watched the case cautiously.

It said the court administering had been “got with a ton of torment and misery by the majority of the Pakistan Military”.

“An ex-armed force Boss, Director Joint Head of Staff Board and Leader of Pakistan, who has served the country for north of 40 years, battled battles for the safeguard of the nation can most likely never be a backstabber,” an assertion said.

Examiners say the establishment is profoundly mindful that how the case continues could start a trend.
Many anticipate that the judgment should be postponed by an allure by Gen Musharraf’s legal counselors and it is indistinct if a solicitation to have him returned would find success as there is no conventional removal deal between Pakistan and the UAE, the BBC’s M Ilyas Khan reports.
