08 January, 2014
ISLAMABAD: Special Court (SC) trying Musharraf in high treason case has been moved against calling former president traitor.
A petition was filed by Akhtar Shah advocate in this regard in SC Tuesday. Federal government and Pervez Musharraf have been made respondents in this petition.
The petitioner has prayed the court that word abrogator of constitution and not traitor be used against Pervez Musharraf. The word traitor has earned defamation to army. In order to save army from further infamy, it is imperative that Pervez Musharraf be not declared traitor.
He requested the court to issue orders for stopping the use of word traitor against Musharraf in media and other places.
