ISLAMABAD: The special court established to hear the treason case against Pervez Musharraf has been challenged in the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Advocate Riaz Sahi, the counsel of Musharraf, filed a petition in the IHC on Monday. The petition states that Justice Faisal Arab was one of the judges who were suspended in 2007, therefore, it would not be appropriate to make him the head of the special court since he would be biased. The petitioner pleaded the court to declare the special court null and void. The court is to hear the treason case against Musharraf under Article 6 of the constitution.

Meanwhile, the Sindh High Court (SHC) has formed a new judicial bench to hear the application for the removal of Pervez Musharraf's name from the Exit Control List. Sindh High Court Chief Justice Baqar Ali has named justices Naimatullah Phalphuto and Sajjad Ali Shah for the upcoming hearing of the case scheduled on December 9. Pervez Musharraf had sought removal of his name from the ECP after being granted bail in all of the cases.
