The indictment made against former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf is an "undignified attempt to smear his integrity" on a world stage, his Office issued in a statement today.
Dr. Raza Bokhari, International spokesperson and North American Point of Contact to General Musharraf said:
The politically motivated indictment filed against Former President Musharraf...is not only false...but is also an undignified attempt to smear the honor and integrity of the Former President on the world stage.
No court of law that wishes to adhere to minimum internationally accepted norms of prosecution and due process would hand out an indictment solely based on allegations included in an email written by a paid lobbyist of Former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto based in the United States.
The lawyer of former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf has said there is "no evidence" to support claims of murdering former premier Benazir Bhutto in 2007, after he was formally indicted today. Afsha Adil told reporters that cases were all "fabricated".
Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf should be tried, public prosecutor Mohammad Azhar said, after he was formally indicted of the murder of former premier Benazir Bhutto who was assassinated in 2007.
The three charges of murder, conspiracy to murder and facilitation of murder were read out to Musharraf at a brief hearing in the city of Rawalpindi.
"These charges are baseless. We are not afraid of the proceedings. We will follow legal procedures in the court," his lawyer Syeda Afshan Adil refuted.
