The Pakistan government today told a special court that Interpol has rejected its request to arrest the former president Pervez Musharraf. The Interpol said that it does not want to interfere in the cases of political nature.
The government’s reply came as the tribunal resumed hearing in the treason case against the Dubai-based former president for suspending the Constitution in 2007 by imposing emergency. Adjourning the case till 10th September, the court ordered that during the next hearing arguments be given over whether Musharraf’s statement can be recorded via Skype or the investigations can move forward without it.
The special court in Islamabad had summoned the interior secretary over non-arrest of Musharraf in the case despite issuance of non-bailable warrants against him on 20th of this month. Musharraf’s lawyer Akhar Shah said that the former ruler could not appear in person due to security reasons.
