Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf arrested from his farmhouse


timesofindia.indiatimes.com

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.

I did a search and surprisingly found nothing on this, but earlier this morning, former President and dictator of Pakistan was hauled into court on treason charges yet ran out of the court house in dramatic fashion and was whisked away in a black truck.

If I'm not mistaken, he was arrested once again at his farmhouse just recently. Kind of confusing reports, but there is plenty about the skirmish earlier today when he his bail was revoked I believe and he subsequently escaped without much resistance.

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. He has a long and detailed history for those who would care to discuss it in this thread.

He was arrested because of his decision to fire and imprison the country’s top judges when he imposed emergency rule in November 2007. The NYT article above has much more information and it's quite an interesting story for any who care to research such things.

Yah, our boy has returned. They know that now and he is unwelcome.

Edit to add: Fresh off the press...


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.

Gee if only we could do that here. Elections are approaching there. Looks like the US seeks to influence that at the last moment?
