A lawyer for Pakistan's former president Pervez Musharraf who is on trial for high treason said Thursday, his client needs to go to the U.S. for further medical treatment following a heart scare. The development is the latest legal twist in a series of legal cases Musharraf has faced since returning to the country nearly a year ago. It came as the former president and retired general failed yet another time to appear in court for a hearing. The attorney, Anwar Mansoor Khan, said a doctor in the United States who has treated Musharraf in the past has advised that he be transferred to the U.S. following recent heart problems. Musharraf's legal drama has also become a tug-of-war of sorts between the military establishment and the courts. less
