Rawalpindi: while briefing the media persons on Thursday, DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said that ‘the detailed verdict on Pervez Musharraf’s high treason case has proven the armed forces’ fears true.’
“The fears that were expressed after the special court’s Dec 17 short judgment, those fears are being proven true.”
According to him, the language used in the verdict was ‘beyond humanity, religion, civilization, and values’.
He stated that “The apprehensions expressed after the brief judgment have proved true now and the words used in the detailed judgment are beyond humanity, religion, civilization, and values.”
He stated that someone has tried to disgrace the honor and institution of the Pakistan army. Anyhow, one should not be spared. He said that the Pakistan Army knows how to defend its institution and it will surely do that.
“Along with defending our borders, we also know how to defend the honor of our institution.”
He further showed concerns and express remorse over the detailed verdict given to Pervez Musharraf.
The judgment regarding Musharraf’s high treason case reads as “We, with the majority of 2 as to 1, allow the complaint and hold the accused guilty of high treason as defined at Article 6 of the Constitution and pass punishment under section 2 High Treason (Punishment) Act, 1973. Thus, the convict be hanged by his neck till he is dead.”
DG ISPR went on saying that COAS and PM Imran Khan will soon hold a meeting to ponder over the detailed judgment.
