    Pakistan payback? Former military ruler Pervez Musharraf, arrested for a crackdown on the judiciary during his rule, was prevented from seeing his lawyer on Sunday. The secretary-general of the All Pakistan Muslim League was also barred from meeting Musharraf, who is under house arrest in two rooms in his Chak Shehzad farmhouse residence. Party leader Mohammad Amjad said the food provided to the former president was not being checked. Musharraf faces a litany of charges stemming from his emergency rule in 2007.
