Treason Case: Musharraf's Emotional Speech in Court.

A Pakistani court has indicted former military ruler Pervez Musharraf for treason on charges relating to his 2007 imposition of emergency rule, in a historic first for a country controlled for half its history by the army.
Tahira Safdar, one of three judges of a special court convened to hear the case, on Monday read out five charges, with the ex-president pleading "not guilty" to each of them.
Musharraf, who has been absent from most of the tribunal's hearings owing to security threats and ill health, then turned to address the court. "I honour this court and prosecution, I strongly believe in law and don't have ego problems, and I have appeared in court 16 times in this year in Karachi, Islamabad and Rawalpindi," the 70-year-old, who ruled Pakistan from 1999 to 2008, said. Appearing fit and confident, he made an emotional speech highlighting the country's achievements under his tenure.
