IHC suspends FIA order to add Shehzad Akbar, Shahbaz Gill and others to no-fly list

Islamabad-The Islamabad High Court on Tuesday suspended the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) order placing the names of crucial helpers of former high minister Imran Khan – including his former counsel on interior and responsibility Shahzad Akbar and special adjunct on political communication Shahbaz Gill and four others – on the” stop list”.

According to media reports, the FIA had a day ago placed six crucial members of the former PTI government — Gill; Akbar; Imran Khan’s focal person on digital media, Dr Arsalan Khalid; PM’s former star clerk Azam Khan; Punjab Anti Corruption Director-General Gohar Nafees; and Mohammad Rizwan — on the” stop list”.
Any person placed on the” stop list”isn’t allowed to leave the country.
Akbar filed a solicitation with the IHC on Tuesday, seeking cancellation of the FIA move that bars him and others from foreign trip.
Akbar and Gill latterly appeared before the court as the plea was taken up for hail.
During the proceedings, IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah remarked that the court had formerly declared the” black list” illegal. Akbar prompted the court to summon the FIA chief and interrogate from him on whose directions his name was placed on the”no- cover list”.
He said in case he’d committed a crime,”there should be an operation moved (to request such a move)”.
The court, while pertaining to Gill and Akbar, asked whether the brace had plans to go abroad by hereafter.”We’re seeking a reply from the FIA hereafter,”Justice Minallah said.
The IHC also sought a reply from the innards clerk and the FIA chief and suspended the hail till Wednesday.
Before, Akbar in his solicitation, a dupe of which is available withDawn.com, made the Ministry of Interior, FIA director general, and FIA Immigration fresh director general as repliers.
He refocused out in the solicitation that he was placed on the no- cover list”at about1.55 am”, just after advancing on the no- confidence stir in the National Assembly had taken place, which he said” showed malafide on part of the repliers, who acted at the decree of someone behind the scene without having an inquiry of complaint by any party.”
He prompted the court to declare the FIA’s act void and unconstitutional and order an inquiry into it.
