KARACHI: The Anti-terrorism court (ATC) accepted a petition by Former President and Army Chief General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf asking for foolproof security if he comes back to Pakistan.
Musharraf had submitted a petition in the ATC saying he wanted to come home provided he gets foolproof security.
During the proceedings of the Judges Detention case on Friday, the ATC ruled that Musharraf will be declared a proclaimed offender if he does not appear in court on February 9.
The court ordered the Interior Ministry and IG Islamabad to ensure security for the former dictator.
In March 18, 2016 Musharraf left Pakistan for Dubai, complaining of health issues. While in Pakistan, he was exempted from appearing in the court after he submitted a medical report where his doctors advised him rest.
