According to the Pasbanan, a special court has been held this morning (17 December) to handle the high treason case. Judge Waqar, in charge of the Musharraf case, dismissed Mr. Musharraf’s plea to suspend the country’s constitution on suspicion of treason, while refusing to grant a final vote. The Special Tribunal of Pakistan has said that Musharraf suspended the constitution and violated the country’s laws on November 3, and he is now found guilty and sentenced to death.
