Musharraf will not escape from Pakistan, says lawyer
Mohammed Amjad, the secretary-general for Musharraf’s All Pakistan Muslim League party, told a news conference in front of Musharraf’s house that Musharraf had no immediate plan to leave the country and even if he does, he’ll come back to Pakistan to face all the cases against him.
“He will not escape from Pakistan,” said Amjad.
Lawyer Ahmad Raza Qasuri said the ruling by a three-judge panel of the Supreme Court means Musharraf is free once the paperwork has been completed.
He expected that to be finished by Thursday morning at the latest.
Musharraf must also post two bonds with the court worth one million rupees ($10,000) apiece before he can be released, said another lawyer Ilyas Saddiqi.
A prison official at Musharraf’s home, Shehzad Riaz, said he was aware of the court’s decision but was awaiting orders from his superiors.
Qasuri said Musharraf will be free to leave the country if he wants.
“He’s a free person. He can move around,” Qasuri said.
“If he wants to go to Dubai tomorrow to see his mother who is 90 he can.”
Musharraf has faced legal problems ever since his return from exile in March.
For security reasons he has been held at his lavish estate on the suburbs of Islamabad instead of a jail.
Pakistani security forces have been protecting the estate following threats he received from the Taleban upon his return
BUT , TO ME THIS IS DIFFERENT STORY ,
I THINK INSIDE OF THIS STORY IS CHAIRMAN PPP WANTS MUSH TO STAY IN PAKISTAN. IT WILL BE GOOD PLAY AGAINST GOVERNMENT AS GOVERNMENT DONT WANT TO GET INVOLVE IN ANY TYPE OF ISSUE AGAINST ESTABLISHMENT , THAT MAY CAUSE DAMAGES TO CURRENT GOVERNMENT.
SO CHAIRMAN PPP IS PLAYING DOUBLE GAME WITH GOVERNMENT WHEREAS GOVERNMENT IS QUITE WORRIED ABOUT LAW AND ORDER IN THE COUNTRY THAT MIGHT REQUIRE AN ATTENTION OF ESTABLISHMENT.
LET'S SEE WHAT ARAB KINGS HAVE TO DO NOW FOR MUSH AND WHAT GOVERNMENT PRACTICE JUSTICE FOR EVERY ONE.
