No trial, Saudis assure Musharraf

* Former president says he wants to put superior judiciary on trial
* Present govt still pursuing past regime�s policies with regard to US

Daily Times Monitor

LAHORE: Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz has assured former president Pervez Musharraf that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif will not demand a treason trial for him under Article 6 of the constitution, a private TV channel reported on Sunday.

Musharraf told the channel he would demand that all the judges of the superior judiciary who had approved his steps also be tried for treason if the government charged him with sedition. He said the country�s national interest would have been compromised if he had not sided with the US in the war on terror after 9/11.

To a question, the former president said it was wrong to assume he had forced Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan to apologise for distributing nuclear secrets. He said Pakistan must fight and eradicate the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Same policies: Musharraf said the present government was following the same strategic policies with regards to the US that his government had pursued, adding there were only minor differences in the modalities of official dealings. He said the military aid given to Pakistan for the war on terror had also been used to strengthen Pakistan�s defence against India.
