Former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf’s national identity card (CNIC) and passport have been ordered for a suspension by Pakistani Interior Ministry.

The Ministry has asked the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) and the Directorate General of Immigration and Passports to carry out the suspension. After the suspension, Pervez Musharraf’s bank accounts will be frozen and his international travelling restricted.

The decision to suspend passport and national identity card was directed after the special hearing of the case against Musharraf on March 8. Former President was given some time to comply with court’s earlier directives before implementation of the court’s decision, which took some time.

The special court has also ordered interior ministry and other administration to take action to arrest Musharraf and take hold of his properties if he doesn’t submit written request for his security for his appearance before court in seven days.

Pervez Musharraf is facing the treason trial for declaring the state of emergency and subverting the constitution in November 2007.

The Muslim block on Mr. Musharraf’s CNIC on the last day of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government has not been confirmed.

Musharraf returned to his home country in 2013 after ending his self-imposed exile, followed by a ban on his travel abroad. In March 2016, he managed to leave for Dubai under medical treatment but has not returned yet.
