Pakistani Senate wants Musharraf tried for treason

Pakistan’s upper house of parliament passed a resolution demanding Pervez Musharraf be arrested and tried for treason for unconstitutional acts during his regime, a senator said, according to CNN. The resolution is not binding, but is symbolic and shows the will of the senate, said Muhammad Ibrahim Khan. The resolution, passed Monday, is part of ongoing pressure on Musharraf, who seized power in a 1999 coup and has been living in exile in London and Dubai since resigning in 2008. Muhammad Ali Saif, a senior leader in Musharraf’s party, dismissed the resolution.
