Islamabad, Jan 28 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has said former President Pervez Musharraf would "certainly be arrested" if he returns to the country.
"In fact, there had been murder charges against him, and there had even been some very grave charges against him, and the Supreme Court had already given a verdict against him," The Daily Times quoted Gilani, as saying.
"Certainly when he'll come back, he has to face those charges and certainly be arrested," he added.
Musharraf had announced plans to return from exile in late January and to contest the upcoming elections, but his party later said he was reassessing those plans when the Pakistan government warned that if he returned he would be arrested.
Meanwhile, one of Musharraf's aides has now confirmed that he has decided to postpone his return to Pakistan.
Mohammad Saif, General Secretary of Musharraf's All Pakistan Muslim League, said: "General Musharraf will return to Pakistan, that's for sure. But we are waiting for the tension between the government and the Supreme Court to subside." (ANI)
