ISLAMABAD: An attempt by former president retired General Pervez Musharraf to avoid his possible indictment on Jan 16 came to naught on Friday when the special court seized with his treason trial dismissed an application seeking suspension of his summons.“This court has no jurisdiction to modify, alter or change its orders, except correcting the clerical mistakes,” observed the three-judge court, headed by Justice Faisal Arab of the Sindh High Court.

The court had summoned Gen Musharraf on Jan 16 for handing him over a charge-sheet for high treason.The court also rejected the defence counsel’s stance that the criminal procedure code (CrPC) did not apply to the treason trial. “The CrPC has an overriding effect on the special laws and, therefore, its applicability in the instant matter can be invoked,” it observed.On Friday, Anwar Mansoor Khan, counsel for Gen Musharraf, filed an application saying that his client has utmost regard of the court, but challenged the legality of the notification about establishment of the special court.He claimed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had not issued the notification in accordance with the set procedure. He said that under Article 90 of the Constitution, such notification could only be issued by the federal government comprising the president, the prime minister and the federal cabinet.
