A Pakistani court trying Gen. Pervez Musharraf on charges of high treason says it's examining a medical report on his condition to decide whether the former president can be excused from hearings while he remains in hospital.
Musharraf remains at the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi, where he was taken last Thursday after suffering what was described as a "heart problem" while on his way to court.
No details of his condition have emerged since then.
The prosecutor in the case, Akram Shaikh, told the court he doubts Musharraf is ill and accused the former ruler of trying to evade appearing in court.
Musharraf missed two earlier hearings in his case because of bomb threats.
