But the court's decision to drop charges against five members of the Pakistani Taliban linked to the killing has sparked anger from some supporters of Bhutto.
The court ordered Musharraf's property to be seized in what his attorney, Faisal Chaudhary, described as a "disappointing and a flawed judgment."
Musharraf was indicted in 2013
on charges of murder, criminal conspiracy to murder and facilitation of murder, but his health problems delayed the case. He was allowed to leave the country to seek treatment in 2016.
Musharraf has lived in self-imposed exile in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, since then.

that Thursday's decision was "disappointing and unacceptable" and described the men as "terrorists."
Sen. Sherry Rehman, a member of Bhutto's Pakistan People's Party, told CNN that while the police officers had been convicted and "there is a tightening of the circle around Gen. Musharraf, this is not enough."
She described the court's decision to drop charges against the Taliban members as "a shock to our party."
"Benazir was more than just a party; she meant so much to the Pakistani people," said Rehman, who was a close friend of the late prime minister's.
"This verdict is disrespectful to her legacy. I was there when the evidence was washed away, when the authorities botched the investigation. The Peop
