Green-light for Musharraf

In a victory for the Army the Sindh High Court has permitted the ex-dictator to leave Pakistan following a 15 day notice period. During his tenure he played a double game proficiently but then (as is the habit with dictators) ended up making a fool of himself. He should have never come back and in our opinion he will not be missed (he is also lucky to be alive).

The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday ruled that the name of former military ruler Pervez Musharraf be removed from the exit control list.

The ruling was issued by a two-judge bench of the SHC comprising Justice Mohammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Shahnawaz following the hearing of Musharraf's request for the removal of his name from the ECL.

The bench stated that parties opposing the ruling could approach the Supreme Court during the next 15 days, adding that Musharraf cannot leave the country during that period.

Earlier on May 29, the court had reserved its ruling on Musharraf's plea after his counsel Barrister Farogh Naseem and Attorney General Pakistan Salman Aslam Butt concluded their arguments.
