Islamabad, Aug.15 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf is not perturbed by the volley of cases being registered against him in the country, a leading member of his legal team has said.

"Nothing is happening that Musharraf has not foreseen," advocate Saif Ali Khan said.

Khan said the legal war being initiated against Musharraf is nothing but political vendetta.

"It is not less than a joke, it is political vendetta. If they want to arrest him, they should try that," The News quoted Khan, as saying.

He said the former general is ready to face the charges, and would try to get pre-arrest bail in the Islamabad case.

"It should be noted that it was not Musharraf who had locked the residences of the judges. There were other officials, including policemen, who did so," Khan said.

Hinting at President Asif Ali Zardari and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif against whom number of criminal cases have been registered, Khan said if such 'tainted' people can hold office then Musharraf had no fears of being prosecuted.

"The former president is willing to face all these cases. If a man against whom 153 criminal and other cases were registered could become the president of Pakistan, and a person, accused of extra-judicial killings, can become the chief minister of Punjab, Musharraf is not scared by the present campaign," he said.

Musharraf, however, has no immediate plans to return to Pakistan.

He would be leaving London for the United States in a couple of weeks to deliver lectures for nearly two months and later moving to South Africa, Khan informed. (ANI)
