Lahore court orders Davis’s name on ECL
LAHORE: Lahore High Court Chief Justice Ijaz Ahmad Chaudhry asked the federal government on Thursday to keep the name of US national Raymond Davis, who has confessed to killing two young men, on the Exit Control List till the disposal of identical petitions challenging his possible handover and immunity status.
A judicial magistrate sent Davis to jail on a 14-day judicial remand in a case relating to carrying illegal arms.
The LHC chief justice observed that the case could be decided only after the submission of a certificate on the issue of immunity.
At the request of Deputy Attorney General Naveed Inayat Malik, the court allowed the federal government to submit a detailed reply by March 14, but restrained it from extraditing the accused abroad.
