Pakistan’s Musharraf no show in court; bomb found
« on: January 01, 2014, 03:43:28 PM »

ISLAMABAD — Former Pakistani president and army chief Pervez Musharraf failed to appear in court Wednesday for the second hearing in his high-profile treason case after authorities said they found an explosive device near his home.

His lawyers, citing the bomb scare, said it was too dangerous for Musharraf to appear in court. It was the third time since the high treason proceedings began that explosives have been found along the path the former strongman is supposed to take to court.

The security concerns and Musharraf’s refusal to attend have stalled the landmark trial, a rare prosecution of a former top general in a country where the military’s authority is rarely questioned.

It’s the most serious of the legal troubles the 70-year-old Musharraf has faced since he returned to Pakistan in March. He came back hoping to run in elections but instead had been faced with a barrage of court cases

Musharraf was our ally, the people going after him now are our allies, bin Laden was killed inside thei country.
