Former Pakistan president Pervez Musharraf has left the country for medical treatment in Dubai after the Supreme Court lifted his travel ban. Musharraf, who faces treason charges, has been suffering from spine-related problems for the past few weeks and has vowed to return to Pakistan after the treatment.

The former military ruler boarded an Emirates flight, which is expected to touch down in Dubai at about 5.20am local time. "I am a commando and I love my homeland. I will come back in a few weeks or months," he told Pakistani daily Dawn just before boarding the aircraft. His lawyers said spinal treatment for him was unavailable in Pakistan, Pakistani media reports.
