Islamabad: The special court has resumed the hearing of high treason case against former military ruler Pervez Musharaf here on Tuesday.
Justice Faisal Arab is headed a three-member bench of the court.
According to reports, during the today’s hearing, lawyers team of Musharraf is expected to challenge the government decision for preventing him to visit Dubai to see his ill mother.
In the last hearing on March 31, the special court has formally charged former president Pervez Musharraf for imposing extra-constitutional emergency in the country in 2007.
Musharraf declared a state of emergency in November 2007, shortly before the Supreme Court was due to rule on the legality of his re-election as president a month earlier while he was also the army chief.
He then arrested and sacked the country’s top judges, including the chief justice, who challenged his decision.
Facing impeachment following democratic elections in 2008, Musharraf resigned as president, going into self-imposed exile in Dubai.
He returned to Pakistan in March last year on an ill-fated mission to run in the general election.
Almost as soon as he landed he was barred from contesting the vote and hit with a barrage of legal cases, including on his decision to raid a radical mosque in Islamabad, the killing of a rebel leader in Baluchistan and the death of ex-prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
