IHC rejects plea to bar Musharraf from going abroad

07 January, 2014

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday rejected a petition that requested that Pervez Musharraf be barred from travelling abroad for medical treatment.

A single-member bench of Justice Shoukat Aziz Siddiqui resumed hearing of the plea filed by Shohada Foundation through Advocate Tariq Assad. The petitioner had asked the court to bar the former military ruler from leaving the country, arguing that he had several cases pending against him in the courts.

During the course of hearing, Justice Shaukat Aziz remarked that it is the job of the courts that provided bail to Musharraf to ensure his appearance. He said that Musharraf could not exit the country without the permission of the court. Justice Aziz remarked that the high court could not interfere in the jurisdiction of the special court that has been constituted to hear the treason case against him.

Pervez Musharraf's wife, Sehba Musharraf, on Saturday filed an application in the Interior Ministry requesting removal of her husband's name from the Exit Control List (ECL), saying he wants to go abroad for his medical treatment.

According to sources, Advocate Chaudhry Faisal Hussain moved the three-page application on behalf of Sehba, requesting the Interior Ministry to exclude the former military dictator's name from the ECL as he wanted to go abroad for medical treatment, as early as possible. Sehba has cited her husband's recent "heart problem" in the application.

End.
