ISLAMABAD: Former chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry Tuesday said that former military dictator Gen (R) Pervez Musharraf is a bhagora (absconder).
Speaking in Roze News program Sachi Baat with Sardar Khan Niazi the former chief justice of Pakistan said that the Apex Court has directed the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) to unblock the computerised national identity card (CNIC) of Pervez Musharraf, which is a good decision. Chaudhry said that when Pervez Musharraf returns to Pakistan he will have to face all the cases, including the treason case that the former President faces.
Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry who recently announced that he will file a case against PTI chief Imran Khan’s eligibility to hold public office under Article 62 (1)(f) over allegations that he fathered a ‘love child’, while responding to a question said that his party does not want to indulge in mud-slinging but is raising the case purely on legal grounds. The former Chief Justice claimed that he has ‘strong evidence’ in the case.
Chaudhry, now the president of the Pakistan Justice and Democratic Party, claimed during an interview with a private news channel on Sunday that he has evidence to show that Khan has admitted to being the father of Tyrian White while abroad, but denies the same in Pakistan. He said his party would file objections against Khan’s nomination papers before the relevant ROs.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Abdul Wahab Baloch, a citizen of Karachi, filed an appeal with a returning officer against Imran’s candidature over the case relating to Sita White, the mother of PTI chief’s alleged ‘love child’.
The appeal has been filed with the electoral authorities against PTI chief Imran Khan’s filing of nomination papers for NA-243 Karachi constituency
