Former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf is being held in "isolation" in his luxury farmhouse, confined to two rooms and stripped of his personal staff, his party spokesman said on Sunday.

The authorities declared the retired general's plush farmhouse on the edge of Islamabad as a "sub-jail", saving him the indignity and risk - his life has been threatened by Taliban militants - of going to prison.

But Md Amjad, spokesman for Musharraf's All Pakistan Muslim League party, complained on Sunday that his lawyers and staff were being denied access to him.
