MULTAN: Former prime minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani left for Cambodia on Monday after the Ministry of Interior removed his name from the Exit Control List, it is learnt.

According to family sources, Mr Gilani who is on the ECL in the Trade Development Authority scandal, was officially invited by the Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen to attend the Asia Pacific Summit 2019.

They said that Mr Gilani sought permission from the ministry to travel abroad which was granted. “He has been allowed to travel abroad for 15 days and it is one-time permission,” a source said.

Mr Gilani took a Thai Airline flight from the Lahore airport. His son MPA Syed Ali Haider Gillani is accompanying him.
