SHC removes Pervez Musharraf’s name from ECL

KARACHI: Sindh High Court (SHC) accepts former President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s plea to remove his name from Exit Control List (ECL) here on Thursday, TheNewsTribe.com reported.

Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Shahnawaz gave the verdict on the petition filed to remove Musharraf’s name from the ECL.

In addition, SHC gave 15 days limit to government to appeal against the verdict otherwise Musharraf’s name will be eliminated from ECL.

“The court has allowed our appeal and ordered to strike down Musharraf’s name from the Exit Control List. The order will be executed after 15 days,” Musharraf’s lawyer Farogh Naseem told AFP.

SHC had reserved its decision on this case in the last hearing, conducted on May 29.
