Pervez Musharraf be produced, ATC court orders to FIA

An anti-terrorism court (ATC) on Saturday gave prosecutors one more week to serve an arrest warrant on former president Pervez Musharraf over the murder of ex-premier Benazir Bhutto (BB). The court directed the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to produce Musharraf in the court during the next hearing scheduled for March 26. FIA Prosecutor Azhar Chaudhry told the court that the arrest warrant had been dispatched to Britain’s Home Office through Pakistan’s Foreign Office for compliance. He also cited a letter from Pakistan’s High Commission in London to the court. He said that Pakistan’s High Commission in London expected British authorities to respond within a week. The court adjourned the hearing of the case until March 26 with directives to the FIA to present Musharraf in the court in the next hearing. Pakistani authorities dispatched arrest warrants of Musharraf to the British authorities on March 9. The former president is alleged to have been part of a ‘broad conspiracy’ to have his political rival assassinated before elections, though the exact nature of the charges against him is not clear. BB was killed after addressing an election rally in Rawalpindi near the capital Islamabad, on December 27, 2007.
