KARACHI: The Interior Ministry on Monday accepted the plea of former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf seeking security upon his return to Pakistan to appear before the special court in the high treason case.

In a notification, the Interior Ministry responded to the plea by Musharraf’s lawyer, mentioning that it was willing to provide security to him.

The notification in its response to the letter sought the details of the former president’s travel itinerary and his stay here in Pakistan so that necessary foolproof security arrangements can be made for him well in time.

In reaction to the notification, Musharraf’s lawyer expressed reservations over the security arrangements to be provided by the government.

On Friday, the special court hearing the treason case against former president Musharraf ordered the federal government to put special measures in place to bring the ex-military ruler back from the United Arab Emirates.

During the hearing, the special court asked the former president’s lawyer to write an application to the Interior Ministry seeking arrangements and security for Musharraf’s return for hearing.
