LAHORE: The PML-N government is not under pressure from several quarters after announcing former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s trial for treason, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said on Tuesday dismissed the notion, media reported.
The minister spoke to the media and claimed that Musharraf forced his subordinates to take unconstitutional steps after 1999 takeover “therefore holding them responsible will be unjustified.”
“Only infestations would reveal who willingly supported Musharraf and who was compelled to obey orders,” the minister said.
He further claimed, “We are not under any pressure after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s announcement in the National Assembly that the government will proceed to try Musharraf under the law.”
“Power-hungry people violated the law and subverted the constitution,” he said.
