All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Secretary General Dr Amjad Malik has denied media reports that former president Pervez Musharraf is leaving for abroad after the acceptance of his bail plea by the Supreme Court.
Talking to reporters on Wednesday, Malik said Musharraf was not going anywhere. “He will remain in the country until the completion of all legal proceedings,” he added.
“We haven’t yet received a copy of the court’s decision,” he added.
Malik said the former president could live like a free citizen after his release. “Musharraf wanted to become part of democratic process and face courts,” he said.
Musharraf has been granted bail in the Benazir Bhutto, Akbar Bugti and the judges’ detention cases, the APML secretary general claimed.
“If we had to make a deal, we would have done that long ago,” he said.
To a question, Malik said the government was accepting conditions of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to get debts, adding that IMF loans would lead to price hike in the country.
