Lahore, Sep.2 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) Secretary General Mushahid Hussain Sayed has said that former President General Pervez Musharraf had left the country after inking a deal with the present government regarding not being prosecuted under high treason charges, and that one call from Saudi government would silence Musharraf's trial seekers.
Speaking on a television chat show, Sayed said only a single telephone call from Saudi Arabia would stop demands for Musharraf's trial.
While ruling out any involvement of the Armed Forces in the present crisis, he said Musharraf's trial under Article Six was impossible.
"The present system had no problem from the army or the Inter-Services Intelligence or any so-called secret agencies," The Daily Times quoted Sayed, as saying.
Commenting on the PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif's threat to hold a long march demanding Musharraf's trial, he said Pakistan could ill-afford midterm elections or long marches against the 'democratic' government.
Sayed said the country's leadership should have the courage to decisions on their own rather than depending upon calls from British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs David Miliband or US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan Richard Holbrooke. (ANI)
