LAHORE - Former president Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf has decided not to appear before the Supreme Court on Thursday (today), it is learnt reliably.

Chief Justice Saqib Nisar had directed the former military ruler to appear before the apex court till 2pm on June 14, but the sources said he was not willing to come to the country from UAE.

Dr Amjad of All Pakistan Muslim League, a political party headed by Musharraf, could not be contacted despite repeated attempts but another leader of his party on condition of anonymity said the former president was not coming to Pakistan.

Ahmed Raza Kasuri, a senior politician who earlier served as close associate of Musharrf, was also of the view that former general was unlikely to come to country.

Talking to The Nation, Kasuri said there were least chances Musharraf would come to Pakistan. The PML-N government, he said, gave Musharraf a safe exit and why would he leave a safe haven now.
