Musharraf sentenced to death in high treason case

Islamabad, Dec 17 (TIWN) In a first in Pakistan's history, a three-member bench of a special court here on Tuesday sentenced former President Pervez Musharraf to death in the long-drawn high treason case against him.

Pervez Musharraf, 76, has been living in exile in Dubai since March 2016 after he left Pakistan for medical treatment and has not returned since citing health and security. Since then, he has spent most of his time between Dubai and London. In March, he was admitted to a hospital in Dubai after suffering from an ailment.  The treason case against Pervez Musharraf was initiated by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The trial was pending since 2013.  The 2007 emergency had sparked protests against Musharraf, leading to his resignation in the face of impeachment proceedings.
