 IHC Grants Fawad Chaudhry Permission to Travel Abroad

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has granted former federal minister and PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry permission to travel abroad, allowing him to temporarily remove his name from the Passport Control List (PCL). Chief Justice Amir Farooq announced the decision in response to Chaudhry’s plea, which sought the removal of his name from the PCL.

The court directed the relevant authorities to facilitate the removal of Fawad Chaudhry name from the PCL for a period of two weeks, enabling him to travel abroad from August 10 to August 24.

This decision comes shortly after the Lahore High Court (LHC) also ordered the removal of senior PTI leader Chaudhary Parvez Elahi’s name, along with his son Rasikh Elahi and daughter-in-law Zara Elahi, from the PCL. Justice Shams Mahmood Mirza issued the order on Parvez Elahi’s plea, arguing that their inclusion on the list by the federal government was unlawful.

Both cases highlight ongoing legal battles involving prominent political figures seeking relief to facilitate international travel amid legal challenges.
