Anwar Mansoor Khan said he had submitted a letter to court asking that Musharraf, who is on trial for high treason, be transferred to Paris Regional Medical Centre in Paris, Texas.

Musharraf is a patient at the Armed Forces Institute of Cardiology in Rawalpindi. He was taken there after suffering a "heart problem" on the way to a court hearing.

The high treason case relates to his 2007 decision to impose a state of emergency in Pakistan and detain a number of judges.

Musharraf returned to Pakistan last year hoping for a political comeback but instead got embroiled in court cases relating to his near-decade in power.
