Pakistani court overrules Musharraf death sentence on treason

01 attacks by al-Qaeda.

Though his coup was regularised by the parliament, the ex-strongman again suspended the constitution in 2007.

Generals have ruled Pakistan for almost half of the country’s existence since its independence from Britain in 1947.

This was the first time Pakistani courts had convicted a powerful military leader.

Musharraf is either already convicted or facing trial in at least four other cases including the assassination of former premier Benazir Bhutto and a prominent tribal chieftain of the south-western Pakistani province of Balochistan.

An appeal of Monday’s ruling is possible but unlikely.
