LAHORE: Following the orders of the Lahore High Court (LHC), the Interior Ministry on Friday removed Opposition Leader in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz’s name from the blacklist.
Hamza had filed a petition in the court while making the Interior Ministry and National Accountancy Bureau (NAB) as parties in the case.
He had pleaded with the court to order the ministry for the removal of his name from the no-fly list as “freedom of movement, mobility rights, or the right to travel is one of the basic human rights, encompassing the right of individuals to travel from one place to another”.
He had further said that he came to know that his name was on the blacklist when he was prevented from boarding a flight in November.
Hamza is being investigated by the NAB over alleged possession of assets beyond known sources of income and the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.
