During Tuesday’s hearing, IHC directed the submission of the complete record of Special Court in the case while the Lahore High Court (LHC) admitted Musharraf’s plea for regular hearing.

A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice Athar Minallah and comprising Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani heard the case.

Justice Minallah during the hearing observed that only paragraph 16 was important in the petition filed by the interior ministry.

Additional Attorney General (AAG) Sajid Ilyas Bhatti informed the bench about the details of the constitution of the prosecution team in 2013.

“Do you know the Supreme Court orders?” Justice Minallah asked the attorney general.

To this, the AAG replied that he had received the case file and orders to appear before the court just 30 minutes before.

The bench remarked that he was representing the federal government and should be aware of facts about the case.
