Treason: Pervez Musharraf gets two days' exemption

Islamabad, Jan 6 : A Pakistani special court, which is investigating the treason case against Pervez Musharraf, granted exemption to the country's former president from attending the hearing for two days after reviewing his medical report on Tuesday, reports said.


The court granted him exemption from appearance for Tuesday and Wednesday.

The court adjourned the hearing into the case until Wednesday.

Musharraf was hospitalised after he suffered "heart problem" on Thursday.

Musharraf returned to Pakistan in March last year 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.
