ISLAMABAD: The special court denied former president Pervez Musharraf’s appeal for treatment abroad on Friday, Express News reported.
A bailable warrant set at Rs 2.5 million has been issued by the court.
Registrar Abdul Ghani announced the verdict.
The court under Justice Faisal Arab and a three-member bench announced that Musharraf should be brought before the court on February 7.
The former president faces treason charges under Article 6 for suspending, subverting and abrogating the Constitution, imposing an emergency in the country in November 2007 and detaining judges of the superior courts.
The 70-year-old had fallen ill and taken to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi on January 2 as he was being transported under heavy guard to the court.
The court had exempted Musharraf from appearing before it in person because of his ill health but after viewing his medical records, it stated in a court order that the accused did not suffer a heart attack nor is his health suffering to such an extent that he is unable to appear before court.
