ATC orders to unfreeze Musharraf’s assets


RAWALPINDI: An anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Rawalpindi on Tuesday ordered the restoration of frozen bank accounts and assets of former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.

The court had earlier reserved its judgment on a petition filed by the former president and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) against freezing of his accounts and assets.

Earlier, the ATC directed that former military ruler should again be produced before it on Aug 6 for indictment in Benazir Bhutto murder case. He would be indicted among eight other accused in the case.

Musharraf was presented amidst tight security during today’s hearing of the case headed by ATC judge Habibur Rahman. Copies of records pertaining to the case were made available to the former military strongman and he kept a set of the copies after signing the requisite document.
