ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid ruled out any foreign pressure on the government in former President Pervaiz Musharraf case.

Talking to a private channel, he said Pervez Musharraf’s case is being dealt with by the court‚ not the government and those questioning government’s role must be aware of country’s law‚ judiciary and executive’s powers.

He said the case is sub-judice and only the court will decide it. Information Minister said the government initiated treason trial as per Supreme Court’s verdict.

He said in the past media was blaming the governments for not acting against violators of the constitution and now of trial of Musharraf will discourage repeated abrogation of the constitution.
