Former president General (R) Pervez Musharraf – File Photo

ISLAMABAD: The British government has refused to process warrants against former president Pervez Musharraf in the Benazir Bhutto assassination case,  issued by an anti-terrorism court of Pakistan, DawnNews reported.

The British Foreign Office informed the Pakistani government that the arrest warrants cannot be processed because there is no official agreement signed between the two countries on prisoner exchange.

However, the British Prime Minister David Cameron during his visit to Pakistan had assured Pakistan’s request would be processed.
