Pakistan's former President General Pervez Musharraf was moved to an intensive care unit in a military hospital after his health condition deteriorated, his lawyers said. 

Musharraf was due to appear in a special court Monday to face high treason charges. A non-bailable arrest warrant had been ordered by the court in the event that Musharraf did not appear.

Musharraf's lawyer Rana Ejaz told reporters that doctors decided to move the former army chief to the unit in a specialist cardiac hospital after his blood pressure rose dramatically.  

He said he could not confirm whether or not Musharraf would appear in the court on Monday, where he is charged with unconstitutionally imposing a state of emergency in 2007.
