ISLAMABAD: Former president General (Retd) Pervez Musharraf informed the Supreme Court on Tuesday that the 2007 National Reconciliation Order (NRO) was enacted to make the election process transparent and end political victimisation in the country.

The former president and army chief’s counsel submitted a reply today after the apex court sought his response in the NRO case.

The reply stated further that the NRO was not brought about with ill intentions and was completely legal.

It further sought to dismiss the petition against the NRO.

The NRO, passed by Musharraf in 2007, granted amnesty to politicians and other individuals by quashing various corruption and criminal cases against them so they could return to the country and engage in the democratic process.
