A special court in Pakistan has sentenced former military ruler Parvez Musharraf to death on charges of high treason and subverting the constitution.

The treason trial against Musharraf – for imposing the state of emergency on November 3, 2007 –  began in 2014.

Musharraf, who is in self-imposed exile in Dubai, was not immediately available for comment. He has denied the charges in the past.

Meanwhile, Pakistan’s army said in a statement posted on Twitter that the decision was received with “a lot of pain and anguish by rank and file of Pakistan armed forces”.
