In A fresh setback for Musharraf, a special court conducting the embattled former dictator’s treason trial Friday ruled the criminal procedure code is applicable in his case and rejected his plea to stay an order summoning him on January 16.
The court, trying 70-year-old Musharraf on charges of high treason for imposing emergency in 2007, said the criminal procedure code was applicable in the matter.
On Wednesday, the court had reserved its verdict on the applicability of criminal laws.
Though Musharraf’s legal team filed an application seeking a stay on the court’s order summoning him to appear in person on January 16, the judges ruled that they could not change their decision.
The three-judge court observed that a decision could be changed only if there is a “typing mistake” in the order.
