Musharraf wants to appear in person in Benazir murder case

Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf wants to appear in person rather than testify through video link in the Benazir Bhutto murder case.

Musharraf has been charged with involvement in the murder of the former two-time prime minister in 2007.

During the trial proceedings of the high-profile murder case in the anti-terrorism court Rawalpindi, Gen Musharraf’s counsel Advocate Akhtar Shah maintained that his client is not interested in testifying through the video link.

He, however, said Gen Musharraf wanted to testify in person and before an open court for which he required foolproof security from the ministry of defence.

According to the counsel, Musharraf is on the hit list of several banned and terrorist outfits and facing serious life threats. However, the government has already declined such a request.

Gen Musharraf on May 5, filed a similar application with the special court, seeking the military’s security and assurance from the court that he would be given a safe passage back to Dubai where he is currently living.

The Anti-Terrorism Court has summoned him and other accused persons to record their statements.
