ISLAMABAD – The special court adjourned the hearing of former president Pervez Musharraf's treason case on Friday in Islamabad.
The prosecutor sought time from the court till Wednesday for implementation of its earlier directives. Three-member bench headed by Justice Faisal Arab heard the case. Earlier, the special court, on the request of former military dictator Pervez Musharraf’ s legal team, has ordered the prosecution team in his high treason trial to provide the missing FIA investigation report and all relevant documents regarding the treason trial to the accused.
During the proceeding of the case Musharraf’s lawyer Shaukat Hyat submitted an application in the court and asked for the provision of relevant documents, including the minutes of the 44th session of the National Assembly (NA), list of members of the then cabinet (Shaukat Aziz and cabinet), list of advisers and attorneys general of the federal government and the list of provincial governors.

Musharraf submitted that the witnesses who have been named in the application are under the control of the complainant so summons should be issued to them by the special court.
Musharraf’s lawyer submitted that no reason was disclosed as to why those mentioned in the list of witnesses were not summoned.
