Text size Aa Aa

Pakistan’s former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, who faces treason charges, will now be allowed to leave the country.

A court overturned a government order which had banned him from doing so. The government can still appeal.

Musharraf resigned as president in 2008. He left the country, but returned to Pakistan in March 2013, hoping to make a political comeback.
