Islamabad High Court (IHC) issued stay orders against Nov 21 decision of the Special Court trying former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for high treason, stopping the court from working further, news reported on Tuesday.

In its Nov 21 decision, the court had ordered the federal government to add former prime minister Shaukat Aziz, former federal minister Zahid Hamid and former chief justice Abdul Hameed Dogar to the charge sheet as co-accused in the treason case.

All the three persons, who have served under the ex-military ruler, later challenged the orders in the LHC through a petition.

Their lawyer, Iftikhar Gilani Advocate appeared before IHC Chief Justice, Justice Athar Minallah, and argued that the special court had exploited its authority by declaring his clients as ‘co-accused’ without any investigation.

He demanded that the special court, which is headed by Justice Faisal Arab, be stopped from working.

At which, Justice Athar Minallah, issued stay orders against the court’s Nov 21 ruling, and stopped it from working further.

The ICH chief justice set Feb 3 for next hearing into the case.

Musharraf is facing high treason charges for suspending the constitution and imposing emergency rule in 2007.
