In a video showing him lying on his hospital bed, Musharraf thanked the armed forces and people of Pakistan for remembering his services to the nation.
The former president also says that he will decide his future course of action after consultation with his legal team.
He explained, “I have faith in Pakistan’s judiciary that they will provide me justice and keep in view the supremacy of law”.
He did not mention whether he was considering returning to Pakistan to challenge the verdict of the special court.
After the verdict was announced on Tuesday, the Inter-Services Public Relations issued a statement saying, “The decision has been received with lot of pain and anguish by rank and file of Pakistan armed forces. An ex-army chief, chairman joint chief of staff committee and President of Pakistan, who has served the country for over 40 years, fought wars for the defence of the country can surely never be a traitor”.
The former military leader further revealed that he had heard about the verdict on television.
