Dr Asim leaves for London after removal of name from ECL

Dr. Asim

KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Dr Asim Hussain has on Sunday left for London from Karachi’s Jinnah International Airport.
The PPP leader and former petroleum minister has travelled abroad for the sake of treatment. It is worth mentioning here that the Supreme Court (SC) had annulled Sindh High Court’s judgment and granted permission to Dr Asim to leave the country for one month.
The apex court had instructed Dr. Asim to submit surety bonds worth Rs6 million and instructed government to make his return certain.
Let it be known that Dr Asim had filed petition in SHC to remove his name from Exit Control List (ECL) citing medical reasons but the plea was turned down. Later, a review petition was filed in SC against SHC’s verdict following which permission was granted to him.
Dr Asim is facing several charges including alleged corruption of Rs460 billion, and facilitating and treating terrorists at his medical facility.
