Islamabad: Former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf filed an intra-court appeal against the decision by Islamabad High Court (IHC) that rejected all three pleas by Musharraf against the special court constituted to try him for treason. Former President had raised objections over the authority of the special court, appointment of judges and prosecutor.

Justice Riaz Ahmad Khan on December 23, had declared the requests inadmissible. Musharraf, when challenging the authority of the special court, had stated that he was the army chief when he introduced the 2007 emergency and a military court alone could examine his actions.
