Pak court issues non-bailable warrant against Musharraf

20 April 2016

A special court in Pakistan hearing treason charges against former ruler General Pervez Musharraf issued non-bailable warrants of arrest on Wednesday for him over his failure to appear before the court despite repeated notices.

According to the Dawn newspaper, Musharraf  left the country on 18 March, soon after the Supreme Court upheld the Sindh High Court directions to remove his name from the exit control list.

"Non-bailable warrants of arrest issued against him are executable through director general Federal Investigation Agency," the special court said.

The court also rejected a separate application seeking Musharraf's exemption from personal appearance for 14 weeks.
