DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf says he will follow through with his plans to return to his homeland despite risks of arrest and other threats.
Musharraf, who has been living in self-exile in London and Dubai, faces possible arrest in Pakistan in connection with the killing of an ex-prime minister.
But Musharraf told journalists Saturday in Dubai that he will return to take part in May elections despite the "fear of the unknown," including possible death threats.
He plans to travel Sunday to Karachi. Journalists and supporters of Musharraf's All Pakistan Muslim League are expected to accompany him.
Musharraf took power in a 1999 coup. He faces charges of conspiring to assassinate ex-premier Benazir Bhutto, who was killed in 2007.
Musharraf has called the charges baseless.
