Rawalpindi: ATC issues Musharraf’s permanent arrest warrants
RAWALPINDI: The Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) No-III, Rawalpindi, on Saturday issued permanent arrest warrants against former President General (retdß) Pervez Musharraf in the Benazir Bhutto murder case and ordered the FIA to present the full record of his moveable and immoveable property in the country.
The court also ordered the FIA to arrest Musharraf wherever he is seen and present him before the court.
The court adjourned further hearing in the case for confiscating all the moveable and immoveable properties of Musharraf till June 25, 2011.
Earlier during the proceedings of the case at the Adiala Jail, FIA Deputy Director Khalid Rasool, recorded his statement, saying the FIA had got an advertisement published in three major newspapers of the country that Musharraf has been declared a proclaimed offender. The government lawyer contended that despite the fact that Musharraf has been declared proclaimed offender, he has not appeared in the court in person; therefore, his moveable and immoveable properties be confiscated.
Other accused in the BB murder case, including former City Police Officer (CPO) Saud Aziz, former SP Rawal Town Khurram Shahzad, Syed Aitzaz Shah, Rafaqat Hussain and Hasnain Gull, were present during hearing of the case.
In last hearing, Rana Nisar Ahmed, the ATC judge, declared Musharraf proclaimed offender and ordered to publish an advertisement in three major newspapers of the country declaring that Musharraf was a proclaimed offender.
