Judge and jury

Picking a fight with the judges is no joke if you return about five years later no longer as head of state. You can read today’s judgment, denying bail to Pervez Musharraf, in PDF form here. Basically the judge (who was among those lawyers detained in 2007, I’m told) told the former president that his actions warranted a charge of terrorism, which is not bailable…

It is a matter of record that, this act of petitioner and his co-accused, spread fear in the society, insecurity amongst the judicial officers, alarm in the lawyers community and terror throughout the Pakistan.

What options are left to Mr Musharraf? Appeal to the Supreme Court…
