KARACHI: Farooq H Naek, lawyer of accused Anwar Majeed and Abdul Ghani Majeed in the high-profile mega money laundering case, on Wednesday said he feared that the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) would arrest him and include his name on the no-fly list.
The lawyer made the remarks during hearing of mega money laundering case at a banking court in Karachi.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur also appeared for the hearing.
Naek said that the investigation agency put names of various prominent and respectable individuals on the Exit Control List (ECL).
He added that the court has not yet issued any stay order but the accused persons were illegally detained by authorities. He said that the court should hold a hearing of the case.
The banking court judge observed that the court was ready to hear the case but the defence counsel would have to wait for the verdict of the Supreme Court (SC).
