Islamabad: On Sunday, the Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Senator Azam Swati has cleared that the court’s verdict against former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf was ‘judicial adventurism’.
While talking about Musharraf verdict to the Geo Parliament, he stated that “This is not judicial activism but judicial adventurism.”
It is pertinent to note that the former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has been given a death penalty by the special court. The special court verdict came over Musharraf’s imposing emergency and suspending the Constitution on November 2007.
The special court on Thursday found Musharraf guilty of the crime and sentenced him to death.
The senator said that the government had “reservations over the whole verdict and not just the controversial paragraph 66.”
He mentioned that “The selection of words in the verdict point to the judge’s ego and bias.”
According to the Paragraph 66 of the verdict, Justice Waqar Ahmed Seth, had “directed the law enforcement agencies to arrest Musharraf and if he was found dead, drag his body to the D-Chowk in Islamabad and hang it for three days”.
