Pervez Musharraf could face life sentence

  • It appeared as if Pakistan was going to be easy on Pervez Musharraf but it announced today that he is going to be charged for treason. 

    A guilty verdict could result in the military dictator spending his life in prison or being given a death sentence.

    Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said proceedings against Musharraf are expected to begin under Article 6 of the Constitution. "It is happening for the first time in the history of Pakistan and the decision has been taken in the national interest," he said.
