By Hamza Ameer Islamabad, March 4 : The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has ordered to remove the name of the former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt. General (retired) Asad Durrani from the country’s Exit Control List (ECL).
The court issued its verdict, stating that Durrani enjoys the same rights as any other citizen of the country, adding that Durrani’s name is not part of any ongoing inquiry.
The former ISI chief landed in hot water after he co-authored a book titled “The Spy Chronicles: RAW, ISI and the illusion of Peace” with Indian former Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) chief Amarjit Singh Dulat in 2018.
Attorney General of Pakistan Tariq Khokhar had maintained that Durrani’s name has been put on the country’s no-fly list because of an inquiry underway regarding the recent book that he co-authored with the former Indian RAW chief.
However, Justice Minallah said, “according to the record, there is no ongoing inquiry against the ex-ISI chief”.
The petitioner is a three-star retired general and served as the former DG ISI. He is now a commoner and enjoys all the rights that he is entitled to under the Constitution”, the court noted.
