Supreme Court (SC) has ordered to remove of former president Pervez Musharraf’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL), allowing him to travel abroad for medical treatment.

A five-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Anwar Zaheer Jamali, while hearing a pending federal government appeal against a 2014 Sindh High Court order removing Musharraf’s name from the ECL, upheld the ruling.

The government’s appeal was rushed through by the government on June 14, 2014 on the apprehension that once Musharraf left the country, he may not return to stand trial under Article 6 of the Constitution
