Pervez Musharraf to appear before court on March 29

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has allowed former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf to appear in court on March 29.

Earlier on March 21, the SHC had granted the protective bail to Musharraf in three high-profile cases without touching the merits of cases. SHC granted protective bail for 10 days to Musharraf in the case of ‘illegal confinement’ of 62 judges after he declared a state of emergency in the country on Nov 3, 2007.

Musharraf, through his counsel, submitted that he left the country on his own but at relevant time no case was registered against him. However, he added that after his departure from the country numerous cases have been planted due to malafide and obvious reasons that he could not come back to country.
