Musharraf is not leaving abroad: APML

ISLAMABAD: All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Secretary General Dr. Amjad Malik has denied that former president Pervez Musharraf is leaving abroad after his bail plea was accepted by the apex court.

“Musharraf is not going anywhere. He will remain in the country till the completion of legal proceedings,” Dr. Amjad said. “We haven’t yet received a copy of the court decision.”

The former president can live like a free citizen after his release, he said.

Dr Malik remarked that Musharraf wanted to become a part of democratic process and face courts. Musharraf has been granted bail in Benazir Bhutto, Akbar Bugti and judges’ detention cases.

“If we had to make a deal, we would have done that long ago,” he told journalist.

To a question, he said that the government was accepting conditions of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to get debts. He noted that IMF lending would lead to price hike in the country. NNI
