LAHORE - A petition seeking high treason action against former President Pervez Musharraf has again been moved in the Supreme Court of Pakistan after meeting objections previously raised by the office. Petitioner Zahid Hussain Malik, through Dr Farooq Hassan advocate, addressed the four objections raised to the petition by the office and fixed certificate of the Advocate on Record. On the objection of locus standi of the petition, that raising the matter before proper forum and multifarious prayers in the petition, the petition says, these issues require judicial disposal of.

The petitioner has accused Pervez Musharraf of subversion of the constitution and the usurpation to tremendously detrimental to the country and torture to the people particularly the lawyers. He has prayed for high treason action against Musharraf. Addressing the objections of locus standi, the petitioner says, he and senior lawyers of this court were badly thrashed, taken into custody and kept in isolated place for a long time on November 5, 2007 when the whole legal fraternity was protesting the PCO of November 3, 2007 issued by Musharraf. He says the action on the lawyers came under instruction of Musharraf after he had usurped power overthrowing a democratic government allegedly through unconstitutional means on October 12, 1999. Three murder convictsacquited A division bench of Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday by giving benefit of doubt acquitted three murder convicts while setting aside their death sentence awarded by trial court of Toba Tek Singh. An additional district & session judge, Toba Tek Singh in 2003 had awarded them death sentence for killing Mohammad Imran and Umar Draz with a fine of Rs 0.1 million each. The prosecution case was that on March 31, 2002 appellants entered the house of the said men and murdered them. The motive for the crime was that three appellants were hired-assassin and they were paid for murder of Imran and Umar Draz by the deceased employee. It was also alleged that the accused later confessed their crime. Appellants counsel Aftab Ahmad Bajwa pleaded that it was a blind murder and witnesses could not identify the accused as they were hiding their faces with clothes. He said even the accused identification parade was not held by hiding their faces with clothes as they were at the time of occurrence. He asserted that in these circumstances the conviction of appellants was unwarranted by law and they should be given the benefit of doubt. The court accepted the appeal by holding that at time of identification parade the appellants faces were not covered as were alleged by the prosecution and they are given benefit of doubt.
