The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday sought reply from the government for removal of former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL).
A two-member bench, Justice Noorul Haq Ain Qureshi and Justice Shaukat Siddiqui, heard the case.
Raja’s counsel told the court that his client’s name has been put on the ECL illegally. He said that the former PM has headed various ministries and faced difficulty in travelling abroad. The court sought reply from the federation and Interior Ministry and adjourned the case until next week.
