Islamabad, July 30 (ANI): Lord Nazir Ahmed has said that former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf could be tried for 'war crimes' in the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Lord Nazir , who became UK's first Muslim life peer in 1998, said that a case can be lodged in the international court of justice against the former Pakistani president

Talking to media persons here, Lord Nazir said members of the House of Lords, lawyers and various people were gathering proof against Musharraf so that he could be tried in London.

It may be recalled that Lord Nazir had raised questions over the British Government's decision to provide security cover to Musharraf, saying there is no such practice for any other former head of state or government currently residing in the UK.

Lord Nazir further said only two guards are provided to former prime ministers of Great Britain while UAE rulers move without any security, then why could Musharraf not live without such arrangements.

He alleged that Musharraf bought flats worth of 1.4 million pounds in the UK and was keeping as many as six bodyguards. It is a question that has to be brought under the microscope. (ANI)
