On November 19, the special court had concluded trial proceedings in the high treason case against Musharraf for declaring a state of emergency on November 3, 2007. The special court ruled the verdict would be announced on the 28th of November.
However, the special court was informed that the present government had sacked the entire prosecution team brought on board to prosecute the high treason case against Musharraf during the tenure of the PML-N government.
The special court reserved its verdict, stating that the prosecution team before being sacked had submitted detailed arguments which were sufficient to understand their point of view.
Musharraf approached the LHC on Saturday against the verdict reserved in the case, seeking the suspension of his trial in absentia.
On the 26th of November, the LHC decided to remove its objections to the petition and set it for hearing on November 28, the same day the special court is scheduled to announce its verdict.
