Court upholds decision to seize Musharraf's assets


Express May 13, 2010

ABBOTABAD: Peshawar High Court's Abbotabad bench ordered the police on Friday to immediately confiscate former president Pervez Musharraf's assets and submit a report after procurement of assets in three days.

On Thursday, the Bench upheld the decision of the district and sessions court to seize Musharraf's assets in relation to the former president's non-appearance in court on April 29, regarding the Atiq-ur-Rehman case.

The two member bench also dismissed the petition filed by Musharraf's counsel to revoke the verdict.

Musharraf was summoned in the case of Atiq-ur-Rehman, an Atomic energy employee who went missing during his tenure. According to sources, Rehman had been called by the city police on the day of his wedding, after which he went missing.

As part of the proceedings, Advocate Iqbal Khan produced as evidence an extract from Musharraf's book, "In the line of fire" in which the former president stated that the state received $10,000 per person delivered to the US during the ongoing War on Terror.

Rehana | 11 years ago | Reply The day it dawns on the 17 crore awaam as to what all Musharraf did for them it would be Eid for Pakistan. You compare him with the Z's for its no more PPP? Compare him with the Sharif bratharaans? No way. Are we under their spells of hollow sogans? Three times both have come,what they did,thewhole world knows. Whosoever is protecting them can't be Pakistan's friend. Wake up before its too late.
