Law and Justice Minister Farogh Naseem refused to comment over the treason case, registered against former president General (r) Pervez Musharraf, during a meeting of task force on civil service reforms on Friday.

While chairing the meeting, Naseem was asked questions regarding the former president, to which the law minister said he would not comment. General (r) Musharraf is accused of unlawfully suspending the Constitution and imposing emergency in 2007.

During Friday’s meeting, the law minister also spoke on accountability and civil laws, saying that there was a need for big changes in the legislation. He also informed the meeting that changes were being made to deal with civil cases at the earliest and said that three recommendations have been prepared to provide the public better justice.

The task force was approved on August 28 to oversee reforms in civil law and National Accountability Bureau laws.
