More than 1,000 security forces guarded a special court in Pakistan’s capital on Monday as former military ruler Pervez Musharraf was finally indicted on treason charges. “I prefer death to surrender,” he said after pleading not guilty to five charges of extra-constitutional and illegal actions against the state. I have only given to this country and not taken anything.” Musharraf faces the death penalty if convicted of the charges over his suspension of the constitution and imposition of emergency rule in 2007, when he was trying to extend his rule as president.
