Pakistan court rejects plea against Musharraf

Islamabad: A Pakistani anti-terrorism court on Saturday rejected an application against the confiscation of former president Pervez Musharraf’s property.
The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) had requested the court to summon Musharraf, who was president at the time of the assassination, and has refused a request to cooperate in the investigation into Bhutto’s death. The court had ordered confiscation of Musharraf’s property and freezing of his bank accounts after he failed to appear and to clarify his position as to why his government had failed to provide security for Benazir Bhutto.

The court’s delivered its verdict a day after Musharraf announced to end his nearly four-year self-exile and to return home this month to take part in the upcoming parliamentary elections. Musharraf, 69, has been living in exile in Britain and the UAE since he resigned as the president in August 2008, fearing impeachment by the Parliament.
