RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Terrorism Court of Rawalpindi directed on Tuesday that former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s assets and bank accounts should be restored before August 6, for his indictment in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Musharraf was produced for the hearing headed by ATC judge Chaudhry Habibur Rahman. The court ruled that Musharraf would be indicted in a week's time. The court also ordered that Musharraf should be present at the next hearing.
While submitting the request for restoration of assets, Musharraf's advocate Ilyas Siddiqui said that the assets of a proclaimed offender cannot be seized if he presents himself before the court within two years.
The court, after hearing these arguments, ordered the release of the applicant’s assets and bank accounts.
Musharraf had been named in the Benazir Bhutto murder case by the ATC in 2011, and he was later declared a proclaimed offender.

Yean! I am dying to hear his live speech once again.
May God save this man. After NS govt fails in stopping terrorism he is our only hope for Afgh, Kpk, Baloch, Sindh, Kar & India issues. He is the only man who is not afraid of Taliban and has no live for wealth & Luxury like others. He is Taliban's worst nightmare not our slippery & cute politicians. Make way for this last hope, Gentlemen!
