ISLAMABAD – Shahzad Akbar, the adviser of ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan on accountability and interior, departed for UAE days after his name was removed from the FIA’s 'stop list' on the order of the Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Reports in local media said Akbar who worked as a deputy prosecutor with the anti-corruption watchdog in the previous regime, traveled from Islamabad International Airport to Dubai on an international airline, from where he is expected to depart for the UK.

Earlier, federal investigators had put Shahzad Akbar, along with 5 other PTI members on the no-fly list, however, the Islamabad High Court revoked the FIA’s notification of a flight ban on former PM aides.

Justice Athar Minallah of IHC ruled that the court has already declared the blacklist illegal.

PML-N leaders earlier alleged that former PM aides should be placed on the exit control list (ECL).
