Pak investigation agency sends notices to Musharraf's 'collaborators' in treason case

Islamabad, Aug. 7 (ANI): The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has issued notices to former president retired General Pervez Musharraf's collaborators in the imposition of emergency in 2007.

The FIA has begun a major investigation into the high treason case against Musharraf under Article 6 of the Constitution.

According to the Express Tribune, the agency has sent notices to former prime minister Shaukat Aziz, his principal secretary Khalid Saeed, former law secretary Justice (retd) Ajmal Mian and seven other top government functionaries.

They all were as per official record a party to the November 3, 2007 emergency, sources said.

The sources said that a joint investigation team will question Musharraf in the high treason case soon after Eid.

As Aziz's postal address in Pakistan is not available, FIA has sent the notice to the High Commission in Britain via the Foreign Office for delivery to the former premier at his residence in London, the report said.

The report said that the FIA team will question all officials who were on duty when the emergency was imposed to depose the senior judges of Pakistan.

The FIA team will also question all the four governors and chief ministers of 2007 to see if they were really consulted by Musharraf before imposing emergency in the country, it added. (ANI)
