Former Pakistan President Musharraf sentenced to death

Former Pakistan President Musharraf has been sentenced death 

A three-judge Bench of a special court in Pakistan on December 17 handed down a death sentence to former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf for high treason, reported Dawn.

The IHC’s order had come on November 27 — a day before the special court was set to announce its verdict.

Musharraf is facing treason charges for suspending the Constitution and imposing emergency rule in 2007, a punishable offence for which he was indicted in 2014.

In 2016, Musharraf moved to Dubai for “medical emergency”, and he did not return.
