Mamnoon Hussain is elected as the 12th President of Pakistan.
Former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf is sentenced to death "in absentia" for high treason, by a 2-1 majority. He is described as a dictator who seized power in a 1999 coup, imposed a 2007 state of emergency and resigned in 2008 to avoid impeachment.
Former President Pervez Musharraf travels to Dubai for medical treatment of his back and leg, before moving on to either the U.S. or U.K. for additional treatment, spokesperson Aasia Ishaque said. Musharraf, 72, will return to Pakistan to face all pending legal cases. Earlier this week, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s government implemented the Supreme Court ruling, and lifted the 2013 ban that barred Musharraf from international trips.
