Musharraf posted bail---Does not recognize authority of the special treason court
Feb 4th, 2014: Dr. Raza Bokhari, international spokesperson for General Pervez Musharraf, Former President of Pakistan, issued the following statement to various media outlets:
We can confirm that Former President Musharraf has posted bail and intends to appear in the special treason court on February 7th, 2014.
General Musharraf wrote on the bail bond "I do not recognize the authority of this special treason court, but I am complying for the greater good of the rule of law."
It is extremely relevant to note the formation, composition, jurisdiction, impartiality, independence and lawful authority of the special treason court is itself under question and under review in superior courts of Pakistan.
it is a blatant disregard of norms of justice that this suspect treason court continues to proceed, while superior courts continue to ignore scheduling a hearing to dispose the challenges raised by Former President Musharraf.
