Pakistan court rejects ex-leader Musharraf's bail over detention of judges
ISLAMABAD (AFP) - A Pakistani court on Wednesday refused bail to former military leader Pervez Musharraf over the detention of judges during his rule from 1999 to 2008, the state prosecutor said.
The ruling came two days after a court granted bail to Musharraf over the murder of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto, who was killed in a gun and bomb attack in 2007.
The retired general has been detained in his farmhouse on the edge of the capital Islamabad since April 19 on charges of conspiracy to murder Ms Bhutto and over the judges' detention case.
"(A) judge of the anti-terrorism court rejected Pervez Musharraf's bail application after listening to defence and prosecution," public prosecutor Aamir Nadeem told Agence France-Presse, adding that Musharraf can appeal to the High Court.
