Court to decide on Musharraf's plea
A special court in Pakistan constituted to try former president Pervez Mushharaf on charges of high treason will decide Friday whether it has jurisdiction to try him for imposing the Eemergency and subverting the constitution in 2007.
To avoid possible arrest, Musharraf appeared for the first time Feb 18 in the court, which deferred his indictment and adjourned the hearing till Friday.
Musharraf's defence lawyers said the special court's jurisdiction should be decided prior to the former president's indictment and their client should be tried in a military court, reported Dawn online.
The three-judge panel, headed by Justice Faisal Arab, will resume the hearing of the 70-year-old, who is facing charges of high treason, which can carry the death sentence.
The former army chief had filed three applications challenging an appointment of the head of the prosecution team, establishment and the jurisdiction of the special court.
Musharraf has been in a military hospital since Jan 2 after he complained of a heart problem when he was being driven to the court in Islamabad.
