Paklistan Court Orders Government To Lift Musharraf Travel Ban

A Pakistani court has ordered the government to lift a travel ban on former military ruler Pervez Musharraf.

A court in the southern city of Karachi ruled on June 12 that Musharraf's name be removed from the Exit Control List.

The court said that the former president could not leave the country for the next 15 days, allowing the government to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.

Musharraf, 70, traveled to Karachi in April to undergo medical tests.

He has said he wants the travel ban lifted so he can visit his sick mother in Dubai.

Musharraf was indicted for treason in March over his imposition of emergency rule in 2007.

He is facing a series of other criminal cases dating back to his 1999-2008 rule.
