"The first petition filed by Musharraf, challenged the constitution of the special court to hear the treason case. The petition stated that Musharraf had taken the November 03 actions as Army Chief and his trial should be under the army act," Geo News reported.
"The second petition filed by Barrister Anwar Mansoor challenged the appointment of the judges for the special court. The third petition also filed by Barrister Anwar Mansoor challenged the appointment of Akram Sheikh as prosecutor in the treason case. In these two petitions, Barrister Anwar Mansoor had taken the stance that the appointments were not legitimate," it said.
Musharraf was earlier summoned by a Pakistani court to appear before it on Dec 24 in connection to a charge of high treason against him.
He will be the first military dictator in the history of the Asian nation to face a trial for treason.
Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March after years of self-exile in the UK.
Musharraf rose to power in Pakistan in a coup in 1999. He had stepped down from the power in 2008 and was threatened with impeachment, which resulted in his self-exile.
