Islamabad: Pervez Musharraf’s lawyer Ahmed Raza Kasuri said that his client is a national asset and soon his difficulties would be over. Talking to media outside the special court Kasuri said Pervez Musharraf has spent his entire life as a commando and he is not a man who would run away from difficulties if he had been a coward he would have never returned to the country.

He said his client was on his way to court but suddenly felt chest pain therefore shifted to military hospital in Rawalpindi. Kasuri said Akram Sheikh has links with Nawaz Sharif and is not behaving like a prosecutor but ‘persecutor’ and wanting Musharraf to be sentenced at any cost.

He said job of prosecutor is to help the court but in this case prosecutor is making complexity. Kasuri said that his client would be freed soon as allegations against him were totally baseless. He said that anyone who has doubts about Musharraf’s ill health they should themselves go to the hospital and see him.

Earlier the court has reserved the verdict on absence of Musharraf in the court which would decide whether Musharraf would be give immunity from court appearance. The hearing of treason case was adjourned till January 6.

Musharraf left his heavily guarded farmhouse in the outskirts of Islamabad to attend the treason case hearing against him. But on his way he complained about chest pain. His convoy was immediately diverted to Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology on Murree Road for a medical checkup.
