Pak govt may shelve Musharraf treason case

Pak govt may shelve Musharraf treason case
Confronted with the challenge of deadly terrorism plaguing the country, Pakistan is considering shelving the high-treason trial against former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf in order to mend fences with the powerful army.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had initiated the treason case against Musharraf in December 2013 for abrogating the Constitution in 2007 when he had imposed emergency.

The Express Tribune has reported that after a wave of protests, the government wants the issue to linger on till the functioning of a special tribunal created to try Pervez becomes irrelevant.

Already, the official prosecution team has refused to prosecute abettors in this case.
