Musharraf lawyers threatened

Islamabad, March 5: Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf’s lawyers were asked to disassociate themselves from the former strongman’s treason case or face beheading.

The threat came in a letter shown in the special court by Musharraf’s lawyer Ahmad Raza Kasuri, who demanded the shifting of the venue of the trial to prevent security threats.

The letter was addressed to Kasuri and two other lawyers. The copy of the letter, which was seen by The Telegraph, said: “All three of you are requested to disassociate yourselves with the case or we will destroy your children and behead all of you.”
