SC orders Musharraf to return to Pakistan by 2pm tomorrow

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday ordered former president Pervez Musharraf to return to Pakistan by June 14, according to a Geo TV report.

The apex court on June 7 had ordered the former president to appear before the court and assured he would not be arrested upon appearance.
Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had said the apex court would pass an order ensuring authorities to not arrest Musharraf before his appearance in court.

The chief justice was hearing a case filed by Musharraf in 2015 against the rejection of his nomination papers in the 2013 general elections.

While hearing the case on Wednesday at the Supreme Court's Lahore Registry, the chief justice said the former president should return to the country by 2pm on Thursday.
