Islamabad, Jan. 30: Pakistan’s Supreme Court has disposed of the review petition filed by former president Pervez Musharraf against the July 31, 2009, verdict denouncing the Nov 3, 2007, emergency declared by him.

The apex court’s 14-member larger bench headed by Chief Justice Tassaduq Jilani disposed of the petition.

Jilani cited that the plea was not based on merit and the arguments presented were irrelevant to the case.

According to Dawn News, on December 23, 2013, Musharraf had filed a petition after a delay of over four years, seeking review of the landmark July 31, 2009, decision.

The review petition was however returned by the court office by raising eight objections, against which an appeal was preferred.
