Islamabad: Former Pakistan President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf is unwell and he is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in Dubai city, media reports said on Tuesday.

Musharraf's close aide and the ex-chairperson of the All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), Dr Muhammad Amjad, told the news channel the former president was rapidly becoming weaker due to an unknown disease, which is why he was unable to return to Pakistan to face the treason case. 

 

Late last month, the law ministry had rejected an application seeking details of the legal team hired to prosecute the former president on treason charges and the fees paid to them, saying it was a classified matter, reported Geo News.

He served as the chief till Nov 28, 2007.
