Musharraf

Pervez Musharraf has been arrested on charges concerning the unlawful detention of judges in 2007. 

He appeared in district court on Friday morning, where he was initially placed under house arrest at his home in Islamabad but later transferred to the police headquarters in the city. 

Musharraf claims the cases against him are politically motivated.   The order to arrest him was unprecedented; he has ruled Pakistan for nearly 10 years.

His legal team has said they will challenge the order in Pakistan’s Supreme Court.  Meanwhile, members of Pakistan’s Senate passed a resolution that the former president should be tried on charges of high treason relating to his declaration of a state of emergency in 2007, this according to the BBC.
