LAHORE:

The Lahore High Court (LHC) has issued notices to the federation to file a high treason case against former President Pervez Musharraf.


The notices have been issued after a petition was filed by advocate Ilamuddin Ghazi under Article 6, seeking registration of a case against Musharraf.


The petitioner alleged that Musharraf violated his oath as an army officer by abrogating the constitution and dismissing an elected government.


The petitioner stated that Musharraf had violated the constitution by detaining several judges of the superior judiciary and even placed the Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and his family under house arrest.


In  the petition he said that government of Pakistan is not serious for registering a case against former military dictator and requested the court to issue orders to government to take action against him under Article 6 of the constitution.


LHC has issued notices to the federation on his petition.
