Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) on Monday rejected Rao Anwar counsel insistence to hear the case on Friday in the review petition for placing his name on Exit Control List (ECL).
The SC three member bench heard the review petition filed by ex-SSP Rao Anwer to remove his name from the ECL. The opposing lawyer in the case insisted the court to adjourn the case citing sickness reason said that he was not able to give arguments while Rao Anwar counsel insisted to hear the case on Friday which the court rejected.
Justice Umar Atta Bandial remarked that it is possible that hearing extended too long and this sought of hearing could not be heard on Friday.
Justice Aijaz Ul Ahsan asked that “why were you hurry in the SC? if you wanted to remove name from ECL then contact to a trial court, to which Rao Anwar counsel responded that his client name was put on the ECL on the SC orders and they could not go to the trial court after the SC orders. Justice Umar Atta Bandial said that the case will be approved for hearing after two weeks and later adjourned the hearing until then.
