Petition questioning Musharraf’s trial rejected

Islamabad, Dec 5: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has rejected a petition challenging the constitution of a special court for the treason trial of former Paksitan president Pervez Musharraf, Online news agency reported.

During the hearing, IHC Justice Noorul Huque Qureshi observed Wednesday that the petitioner Riaz Hanif Rahi should have approached the proper forum, while the Registrar office recorded its objection that the petitioner was not the affected person, hence, his right to challenge did not hold.
