Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has filed an application in the Lahore High Court (LHC), urging it to stay the proceedings pending before a special court in Islamabad which is seized with the high treason case against him.

Filed on Saturday through advocates Khawaja Ahmad Tariq Raheem and Azhar Siddique, the petition asks the LHC to stay the trial at the special court until Musharraf's earlier petition pending adjudication by the former is decided, Dawn news reported.

In that petition, the former leader had challenged the formation of a special court holding his trial under charges of high treason and legal flaws committed in the procedure.

Musharraf's latest application comes after the three-member special court earlier this month said it would announce verdict in the high treason case on December 17 after hearing the arguments of the government's new prosecution team.

Musharraf was booked in December 2013 for imposing the state of emergency on November 3, 2007, and suspending the Constitution till the mid of Dec 2007.

He was declared a proclaimed offender by a special court in the high treason case.
