ISLAMABAD: According to Baaghi TV reports, a case was heard against the inclusion of Shehzad Akbar, Shahbaz Gill, and others on the Stop List.
Islamabad High Court (IHC) Chief Justice (CJ) Athar Minallah heard the case. The FIA provided a copy of the complaint to the parties. An inquiry is set to begin on April 7 over the complaints of the two Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) lawyers, the lawyer said.
Chief Justice of Islamabad High Court Athar Minallah asked, what is the legal status of the stop list? Will the names be included in the stop list after making an inquiry against anyone? Lawyer Shahbaz Gul said that the name on the stop list can only be added on the basis of terrorism, murder, or abuse case charges.
It is pertinent to note that former accountability adviser Shehzad Akbar left Islamabad for Dubai yesterday, on private airline flight EK615. Shahzad Akbar’s name was added to the stop list by FIA a few days prior, however, Akbar’s name was removed from the stop list on the orders of the court. According to reports, Shahzad Akbar will travel to London from Dubai.
Shahzad Akbar had served as an adviser to former Prime Minister, Imran Khan. When Akbar resigned following the ousting of Khan as PM, the opposition had demanded his name be added to the Exit Control List (ECL). Thereby, Akbar’s name was included in the ECL however, the IHC issued orders to remove the names of Shehzad Akbar and other Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leaders from the stop list.
