|Musharraf A/Cs:Judgment likely on Oct. 3|
29 September 2012
RAWALPINDI: The trial court Saturday here after completion of hearing reserved the judgment on the petition for the de-freezing of the accounts of former President General (retd.) Pervez Musharraf, whose accounts were earlier frozen in former prime minister Benazir Bhutto murder case.
Pervez Musharraf’s wife Begum Sehba Musharraf had filed the petition in the anti-terrorist court here for de-freezing of the accounts, which included 7 personal accounts of Pervez Misharraf and 4 others.
FIA arguing against the restoration of the accounts said that Sehba Musharraf didn’t have her own source of income and the balance amount of the joint account also belongs to Musharraf. Pervez Musharraf is a proclaimed offender and unless he comes here to surrender, the petition for restoration of accounts cannot be entertained, argued the FIA.
Sehba Musharraf’s counsel concluding his argument said that any joint account without proper enquiry could not be frozen.
Later, the court pronounced the completion of the hearing on the petition, but reserved the judgment. The court also approved the submission of some more documents by the petitioner’s counsel. The reserved judgment is expected to be announced on October 3.
