Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), has shared the Pakistan Army’s reaction over the verdict of a death sentence given to Pervez Musharraf in the high treason case, in a form of a press release.
The top military spokesperson has said that the special court verdict has been received with “a lot of pain and anguish within the rank and file of Pakistan armed forces”.
DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said in a statement on Tuesday, said that “An ex-Army Chief, Chairman Joint Chief of Staff Committee and President of Pakistan, who has served the country for over 40 years, fought wars for the defense of the country can surely never be a traitor”.
“The due legal process seems to have been ignored including constitution of special court, denial of fundamental right of self defence, undertaking individual specific proceedings and concluding the case in haste.”
“Armed Forces of Pakistan expect that justice will be dispensed in line with Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan”, says the press release.
