Justice Shams Mehmood Mirza delivered the verdict, addressing the addition of their names by the federal government on June 28.

Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, President of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), challenged the inclusion of his name and others on the PCL, arguing that it was done illegally.

The petition highlighted that Elahi’s name was added to the Exit Control List (ECL) to prevent him from performing Umrah. The federal government opposed the petition.
