SHARJAH - The Dubai-based mother of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf has been rushed to hospital in a serious condition.
A spokesperson of Musharraf’s All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) told Khaleej Times on Saturday that his 95-year-old mother was in a serious condition and was being rushed to W Wilson Hospital.
“She has severe breathing issues which could lead to other problems…we fear she could develop heart problems,” said a spokesperson.
She had been rushed to hospital two days ago but had recovered.
“Please pray for Gen Musharraf’s mother. She has been taken to the W Wilson Hospital in Sharjah in serious condition 10 minutes ago,” read a message from the spokesperson. A high-profile treason case is currently being held against the 70-year-old Musharraf.
He is currently at a military hospital in Rawalpindi and has avoided appearing before the Special Court, citing medical and security concerns.
Musharraf is facing charges of challenging the Constitution in 2007, when he imposed emergency rule and fired top members of the judiciary.
It was not clear if Musharraf would be allowed to travel to Dubai to see his sick mother.
