ISLAMABAD (Awaaz News) – Former President Supreme Court Bar Association and senior lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan Monday said former president Pervez Musharraf violated the constitution twice and treason case should be proceeded against him.
According to media reports, Aitzaz Ahsan welcoming Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif decision for treason case against Pervez Musharraf said that all democracy lovers and those upholding the law would second the decision of PM.
He said Pervez Musharraf violated the constitution on Oct 12 and Nov 3 2007 and kept 60 judges in confinement treason case should be proceeded against him but action should also be taken against those who are sitting in Nawaz Sharif’s cabinet and had sided with Musharraf.
Aitzaz Ahsan said that Mian Nawaz Sharif would have to think about the fate of those ministers who are sitting in his cabinet who at that time had endorsed the steps of Musharraf instead of resigning.
Without naming PML-N leader Zahid Hamid, he said that if Musharraf gives a statement in court that he was not alone in the Nov 3 2007 steps but others such as Shaukat Aziz and other lawyers were also involved on whose advice he had taken the decision than that could create problems for Nawaz Sharif.
He said that he has always stood against dictators and he is the only person who had countered four dictators.
