SLAMABAD: Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has been arrested by the police in Islamabad.
On Thursday morning, the Islamabad High Court had cancelled his bail in a case related to the dismissal of judges when he was Pakistan's president.
"Look who is running, Musharraf is running," lawyers at Islamabad high court chanted as former dictator Pervez Musharraf fled after the court revoked his bail and ordered arrest in a treason case.
General Musharraf took control of Pakistan in 1999 and ruled it until 2008. He has been a great ally to the US during the War on Terror through the eyes of the political elites but as far as I am concerned is just another shady politician and military man.
Less than five years after wielding absolute power, the retired four-star general has become the latest example of the Pakistani judiciary’s increasing willingness to pursue previously untouchable levels of society — even to the top ranks of the powerful military.
