The Pakistan government has formed a high-level committee to investigate the emergency rule imposed by former president Pervez Musharraf in 2007, Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan told parliament on Thursday.

Musharraf, who faces high treason charges for abrogating the constitution during his 1999—2008 rule, had imposed emergency rule in November 2007, and had suspended the constitution.

He had also placed dozens of top judges, who had refused to take oath under his provisional constitutional order, under house arrest.

Nisar told the National Assembly Thursday that the four-member committee comprises senior officials of the Federal Investigation Agency, Xinhua reported. He said the committee would keep his ministry informed about its investigation and submit its report “within the shortest possible time”.
