A Pakistani court has rejected bail for former President Pervez Musharraf, setting the stage for his possible arrest, his lawyer said Thursday.
Surrounded by his security detail, Musharraf left the Islamabad High Court after it issued the decision, said lawyer Ahmed Raza Qasoori. Local television showed him walking through a large crowd outside the courthouse and getting into a black SUV to return to his villa.
Musharraf resigned as president of the south Asian nation five years ago and went into exile in London and Dubai. He returned to Pakistan recently, saying he planned to contest three different court cases against him and run in upcoming elections.FULL STORY
