A special court in Pakistan hearing treason charges against former military president Pervez Musharraf Tuesday ordered authorities to freeze his bank accounts as well as seize his property anywhere in the country.
The three-member panel of judges cited Musharraf’s continued personal absence in the high-treason trial despite repeated notices.
The former Pakistani leader left the country in March after a provincial court allowed him to travel abroad for medical treatment, a ruling the Supreme Court later upheld.
During Tuesday’s proceedings, the special court also instructed authorities to submit as soon as possible “a compliance report” of its orders and adjourned the hearing until Musharraf is arrested or he surrenders to appear before the panel and answer the treason charges.
