Govt clueless about Mush appearance in court

ISLAMABAD - The federal government Wednesday night was clueless about former president Pervez Musharraf’s inclination regarding his appearance before a special court despite proper security arrangements that would be put in place today.
An official source in the federal interior ministry informed that the government had made all the security arrangements for Pervez Musharraf’s appearance before the court. However, Musharraf’s legal team have showed their no confidence in security arrangements made by the capital police and they are asserting before the court that Musharraf could not appear in such volatile security arrangements.
The official said that 1000 security personnel including 268 Rangers had been deployed on Wednesday en route from Musharraf’s farmhouse to National Library, where the special court is meeting. He also said that similar arrangements would be placed today. But, as the court has not issued arrest warrants against Musharraf, the government could not produce him before the court forcibly.
