ISLAMABAD: A resolution calling for the trial of former president Pervez Musharraf for treason under Article 6 of the Constitution was unanimously passed in the Senate, Express News reported on Friday.
Members of the Senate including Ishaq Dar and Raza Rabbani addressed the media, following the senate session.
Rabbani, while commenting on Musharraf’s imprisonment in his farmhouse, said the retired general was a self-proclaimed president and should not be given preferential treatment.
“We all are equal and we all should be treated equally,” he said.
Earlier on April 18, the Islamabad High Court issued arrest order for Musharraf, however, he fled the court premises without getting arrested. He was taken to his residence in Chak Shahzad by his security convoy.
