 SHC dismisses Musharraf treason plea

 Updated at: 1048 PST,  Thursday, October 14, 2010
SHC dismisses Musharraf treason plea KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) discharged a petition regarding high treason charges against former President Gen (rtd) Pervez Musharraf and his associates, Geo News reported Thursday.

The petitioner has been directed to go to Supreme Court (SC).

Petitioner Maulvi Iqbal Hyder filed the plea, which said Pervez Musharraf, resorting to extra-constitutional measure, imposed emergency on November 3, 2007 and put over 60 judges of higher judiciary under house arrest with all rampant willful decisions.

The Attorney General of the time Malik Qayyum and Sharifud Din Pirzada assisted him; thus, all the three committed high treason.

As no later assemblies gave constitutional protection to these measures; accordingly, the court was pleaded to take action against all these defendants under Article-6 of the Constitution.

The court, dismissing the plea, said the matter has come under hearing before the apex court; hence, any high court ruling in this regard is uncalled for.
