ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan’s former President Pervez Musharraf is ignoring a summons to appear before the country’s top court to explain his 2007 declaration of a state of emergency and the firing of several dozen judges.
Musharraf did not appear in court himself or send anyone to represent him on Thursday, the second day of the court hearing. The former military ruler lives in London and also did not appear in court Wednesday.
The Supreme Court issued a notice last week for Musharraf to appear in court or send a representative to explain his actions.
The summons was issued by a court reviewing petitions challenging his imposition of emergency rule and firing of the judges. It could lay the groundwork for future action against him.
