Property seizure: ATC grants time to Sehba’s lawyer, adjourns hearing
RAWALPINDI: The Rawalpindi Anti-Terrorism Court on Saturday adjourned the hearing of the petition against the seizure of the assets of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf’s assets filed by his wife, Sehba Musharraf, to Nov 17, DawnNews reported.
The petition, filed in response to the Benazir Bhutto assassination case, was heard by Justice Chaudhry Habibur Rehman.
During the hearing, Sehba’s counsel Advocate Ilyas Siddiqui informed the court that he had been unsuccessful in contacting his client regarding the details of her assets and would not be able to submit the said information in court today.
Subsequently, the court granted him time and adjourned the hearing until Nov 17.
Sehba had filed the petition in Sept 2011 seeking a stay on the court’s order to confiscate the properties and freeze the accounts of her husband in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.
She had said that the orders against her husband declaring him an absconder and attachment of his properties be withdrawn or recalled and the attached properties released to the petitioner.
