I just came across this in my news feed. Former Pakistani military ruler Pervez Musharraf has been sentenced to death for treason by a court. Musharraf is very ill and currently living in Dubai, unlikely to return to Pakistan, where he could fight the ruling if he so chose. Pakistan and the United Arab Emirates have no extradition treaty, it’s unlikely authorities of the U.A.E. will arrest him. This seems, at least to me, to be more of a symbolic move by the Pakistani government to send a message that they don’t want to be ruled by dictators. This is the first time they’ve punished a military leader, let alone sentenced one to death. So in that vein, they feel like they are putting a check on power. I don’t know everything about this matter, so those with more insight, please chime in!
