19 April 2013

Pakistani police arrested former President Pervez Musharraf at his residence on the outskirts of Islamabad on Friday and presented him in court in connection with allegations he committed treason while in office, television stations reported. Television footage showed Musharraf being escorted by uniformed police officers to an Islamabad court. A judge issued an arrest order for the former army chief on Thursday. Musharraf, who ruled Pakistan from 1999-2008, returned to Pakistan last month from nearly four years of self-imposed exile in the hope of running in next month’s general elections. — Reuters
