Sindh court allows Musharraf to go abroad

Karachi, June 12 (PTI): Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, facing treason and other charges, may be able to fly abroad after a gap of 14 months with a court ordering the Pakistan government to lift a travel ban imposed on him.

The decision of the Sindh High Court made in the absence of prosecution lawyer triggered speculation that there may have been a tacit understanding behind the scene between the powerful military and the civilian government to allow the former army chief to go abroad.

Musharraf, 70, who returned to Pakistan in March last year ahead of the general elections ending his over four-year self-imposed exile, has faced multiple trials including one under the high-treason act for which he was placed under house arrest and barred from travelling abroad.
