Interior Ministry removes Hamza Shehbaz's name from blacklist

LAHORE: The interior ministry on Friday while following the orders of Lahore High Court (LHC) removed the name of Leader of Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz’s name from blacklist.
Hamza had filed a petition in the court while making interior ministry, passport immigration authorities and NAB parties in the case.
The applicant pleaded with the court to order the interior ministry for 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.”
The application further stated that the applicant came to know that his name was put on the blacklist when he was prevented from boarding a flight in November while he was being investigated by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) over ‘possession of assets beyond known sources of income’ and the Ramzan Sugar Mills case.
The application said that Hamza Shehbaz has been appearing in the investigation and coordinating with the NAB officials in the cases.
On January 10, LHC heard the plea and summoned a reply from interior ministry while allowing Hamza to travel abroad for 10 days.
