Pakistan’s new PM to decide fate of Musharraf

Nawaz Sharif must decide if he will pursue treason charges against ex-military ruler who deposed him.

    The man who is set to take over as Pakistan's prime minister will have to decide what to do with the general who deposed him in a coup 14 years ago.

    Nawaz Sharif must be careful not to upset the army as a treason charge against Pervez Musharraf could also implicate the soldiers who were under his command at the time, including current chief of staff Ashfaq Kayani.

    Sharif may be reluctant to provoke the military, which has avoided political interference for the past five years, so early into his term as prime minister.
