ISLAMABAD- The three-member bench of the Special Court did not come to court for the hearing of the treason case against Former President Pervez Musharraf, stating that the Court was not secure.
Referring to yesterday's attack inside a District Court in Islamabad, the Judges told the registrar that the Special Court was also located in the same city and it was not safe; therefore they would not appear in court today.
The lawyers stayed away from the Court proceeding on the call of the Pakistan Bar Council to observe countrywide strike in protest against the F-8 Islamabad, Kachehri terror attack.
Due to the absence of the judges, the hearing was postponed till March 5, 2014.
Speaking to the journalists, Musharraf's advocate Ahmed Raza Kasuri said that the Local Bar in Islamabad had boycotted all legal proceedings in the city for a week.
He stated that Musharraf's legal team would respect that boycott.
Kasuri further said that Musharaff’s previous concerns regarding insufficient security proved true with the recent terror attacks in Islamabad court.
