Mush will be arrested if he returns: Gilani

Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf will definitely be arrested if he returns to the country, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said here on Friday.

“In fact, there had been murder charges against him, and there had even been some very grave charges against him, and the Supreme Court had already given a verdict against him,” Gilani said at the Global Economic Forum in Davos.

“Certainly when he’ll come back, he has to face those charges and certainly be arrested,” the prime minister said.

Musharraf had announced plans to return from exile in late January and to run in the upcoming elections, but his party later said he was reassessing those plans when the Pakistan government warned that if he returned he would be arrested.

The Senate has passed a resolution demanding Musharraf be arrested and tried for treason.
