Rana Shamim’s name placed on PNIL: Rashid


Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Wednesday that the former chief justice of Gilgit-Baltistan Rana Mohammad Shamim’s name had been placed on the Provincial National Identification List which is a 30-day temporary travel restriction introduced in 2018 as an alternative to the more tedious Exit Control List.

Addressing a ceremony in Islamabad, the interior minister said: “Rana Shamim has been placed on PNIL […] so he doesn’t run away,” and added there would be a meeting to deliberate his placement on the ECL as well.

The former GB judge is one of the central figures in case related to his affidavit in which he accused former Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar of colluding to deny bails to top PML-N leadership before the 2018 general elections. The Islamabad High Court is currently conducting hearings on the matter. Ahmed said focus was needed on the National Action Plan.
