Former military dictator and president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf has expressed the hope that he would be acquitted after two to three court hearings.

Speaking at an event here in Dubai on late Thursday night, the former ruler said that he would land in Pakistan on January 25 or 27.

He claimed that about 500 to 600 people from all over the world would accompany him on his return, adding that he is ready to face the courts.
