Former Pakistan president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf is likely to fly out of the country as part of a 'secret deal'.
The move would be a repeat of events in 2001 when incumbent Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family were sent to Saudi Arabia under a deal. The only difference between then and now is that Musharraf would be allowed safe passage on health grounds, under a deal that would be brokered by international players, sources said
According to the Express Tribune, legal experts, however, said that Musharraf cannot leave the country without the court's permission. The court, in its order of April 8, 2013, directed the government to make sure Musharraf remained in the country until initiation of a criminal case against him for subverting the Constitution, the report added.
