Islamabad: An anti-terrorism court in here that is hearing the judges' detention case against former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf, Friday ordered him to appear in person at its next hearing April 25.


The ATC has directed Musharraf's guarantors to make sure of the former army strongman's presence in its next hearing, Dawn online reported.

Musharraf's lawyer presented Musharraf's medical report and said that he could not appear in court for Friday's hearing due to security reasons to which the ATC, accepting the application, adjourned the case till April 25.

The judges' detention case is based on an FIR filed against Musharraf in August 2009 on the complaint of advocate Chaudhry Mohammad Aslam Ghumman.

He had asked the police to initiate legal proceedings against Musharraf for detaining over 60 judges, including then chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, after proclamation of a state of emergency in the country Nov 3, 2007.
