ARY News’ correspondent Zulqarnain informed that PM Nawaz has started consultation with Foreign Ministry to make decision regarding Musharraf’s application.

On Friday, Advocate Faisal Chaudhary filed an application with Interior Ministry on behalf of Pervez Musharraf seeking permission to travel to Saudia to mourn death of the Saudi king and meet their family members.

The former president is currently having his name placed in the Exit Control List (ECL). The office of the attorney general of Pakistan (AGP) on October 1, 2014 had submitted records along with court orders in Supreme Court against Musharraf in six different cases, such as Lal Masjid case, Benazir Bhutto murder case, judges’ detention case and Nawab Akbar Bughti murder case among others.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on June 23, 2014 had suspended the Sindh High Court’s earlier decision to strike off former military dictator Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf’s name from the ECL.

The federal government had filed an appeal against a Sindh High Court (SHC) decision to remove the former president’s name from ECL.
