SHC orders to remove Musharraf’s name from ECL The Sindh High Court (SHC) has ruled out the removal of the name of former President Pervez Musharraf from the exit control list. Justice Mohammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Shahnawaz of two-judge bench of the SHC, issued the ruling on Thursday whereas the verdict had been reserved on May 29. Enforcement of the order will take 15 days to implement giving time to the Government and opposing parties to make an appeal in Supreme Court of Pakistan whereas Musharraf is restricted to stay in Pakistan during that period. “The court has allowed our appeal and ordered to strike down Musharraf’s name from the ECL. The order will be executed after 15 days,” Musharraf’s counsel Barrister Farogh Naseem said to media. Attorney General of Pakistan (AGP) Salman Aslam Butt has said that there is apprehension that once the petitioner is given the freedom to leave Pakistan, he would never come back to appear in the court for his trials. The federal government of PML (N) had placed his name on the ECL to restrain him to leave the country.
