ISLAMABAD: A special court on Tuesday said absconding former president Pervez Musharraf can record his statement through Skype as it is vital to the ongoing treason case against him.
The former military ruler’s counsel Barrister Salman informed the two-member bench, presided by Chief Justice of Lahore High Court (LHC) Yawar Ali, that he will seek his client’s permission regarding the matter.
The former president’s counsel also asked for time as he said that he would personally need to visit Musharraf and discuss the matter.
Barrister Salman further said that the former president was not avoiding court proceedings but was unable to travel due to health reasons.
“My client is a 75-year-old sick man,” Barrister Salman added.
The court adjourned the hearing till October 15.
It is pertinent to mention that the Supreme Court ordered to hear the Musharraf treason case on a daily basis from October 9.
