KARACHI: Two hospitals in the United States of America were contacted regarding the former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf's angiography, Express News reported on Saturday.

The former military ruler's medical report was also sent to both hospitals.

Musharraf faces treason charges under Article 6 for suspending, subverting and abrogating the Constitution, imposing an emergency in the country in November 2007 and detaining judges of the superior courts.

The 70-year-old had fallen ill and was taken to the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi on January 2 as he was being transported under heavy guard to the court and is continuing his treatment there. Musharraf has been at AFIC for over three weeks now.

It was reported on January 24 that Musharraf is unwilling to undergo angiography in Pakistan and wishes to go abroad for treatment as the cardiac support system in the country is not up to standard.

The report, which Express News had obtained, had stated that the former president should get an angiography as soon as possible.

It had added that Musharraf’s health is such that a heart attack could be “life-threatening”.

On January 16, Musharraf's US-based doctor, Dr Arjumand Hashmi – after reviewing the former president’s medical reports – had recommended that the former military ruler should be immediately sent abroad for treatment.

Another hurdle

Earlier today, advocate-on-record Zafar Abbas Naqvi sent a legal notice to Musharraf for not paying his legal fees.


Naqvi has registered four cases in the Supreme Court on Musharraf’s behalf, all of them related to the November, 2007 emergency.

He said that he was paid only Rs47,000, adding that he sent a legal notice to the former military ruler but no progress was made.

“I can also take the cases back if I am not paid,” he warned.

@Mirza: Do you know? You can't visit or start a conversation with a heart patient even if you are his relative and allowed at his bedside! I have seen many patients' health deteriorated soon after his/her dear guest leave the hospital.What do you say about that? I guess you did not have a chance to see or know any such patients, do you? It's not about Mush exactly, instead about the future of Pak Brass getting upset about political crises in the country and taking extreme measures. Forget about Mush or Judiciary or National Corruption. It's all about who ever has the chance to get back at someone. Brave Mush was just Walked into the Trap.
