ISLAMABAD (DNA) – Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Mian Saqib Nisar on Tuesday has directed former president Pervez Musharraf to record his statement in National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) case.

During the hearing, the top judge assured to provide Rangers security to the ex-president on his arrival in Pakistan and also directed to facilitate him with the doctor of his choice.

Won’t ask about assets from Musharraf, he affirmed.

CJP has also ordered to reopen former army general’s farm house in Chak Shahzad.

Meanwhile, responding to a question related to Musharraf’s return, defence lawyer said that his client is not a coward man.

Earlier, lawyer Akhtar Shah had submitted an affidavit as per which, the ex-president possesses three cars abroad while he has 92,1000 dirham in foreign currency account.

The counsel said that Musharraf has not earned this money from Pakistan.

The graft cases were shelved in 2007 after then attorney general Malik Qayum wrote letters to the Swiss authorities following the promulgation of the NRO by then-president Musharraf.

The Supreme Court, however, scrapped the NRO in 2009.
