Pakistan: Benazir murder case: Musharraf summoned for April 23

13th Apr 2013

RAWALPINDI, (Dawn): During Saturday’s proceedings of the Benazir Bhutto murder case,
the Rawalpindi anti-terrorist court summoned all accused, including former military ruler
Pervez Musharraf, for its upcoming hearing, DawnNews reported.

The case was heard today ATC judge Chaudhry Habibur Rehman.

Although, Musharraf has already been summoned in the case twice, he still failed to appear
for today’s hearing after which the judge issued summons for him and the other accused.

The hearing of the case was subsequently adjourned to April 23.

Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in a gun-and-bomb attack outside Rawalpindi’s Liaquat
Bagh on December 27, 2007. She was killed after addressing an election campaign rally in
the city.

The ATC had indicted Musharraf in the case in February 2011, and in August the same year
he was declared a proclaimed offender and his property was attached because of his absence.
