ISLAMABAD — A Pakistani court hearing the case against former military ruler Pervez Musharraf on charges of high treason rejected Friday a request that he be allowed to go abroad for treatment, his lawyer and a court official said.
Instead, they said, it issued an arrest warrant for the retired general. But the warrant is ‘‘bailable’’ — meaning he can avoid jail by applying for bail and depositing a bond of about $20,000) The court said it did not have the authority to remove his name from the exit control list which restricts him from going abroad.
