According to the lawyer of Retired Gen Pervez Musharraf, the ex-president will be returning to Pakistan on May 1.
“According to Pervez Musharraf’s family members, he is returning to Pakistan on May 1 despite his poor health,” his legal counsel Salman Safdar said as he confirmed that his client will appear before the court on May 2.
On March 31, 2014, the special court had indicted Musharraf for suspending the Constitution on November 3, 2007.
He had left the country in March 2016 for Dubai for medical treatment of his back, but never returned despite promising that he would. He was later declared an absconder for his failure to appear before the court despite multiple summons.
It is pertinent to mention here that last month a special court had ordered Musharraf to appear before it on May 2. His counsel has subsequently put forth Musharraf’s request to appear in court on May 13 instead.
