LAHORE, Pakistan, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Pakistan's Lahore High Court restored the security protocol of Abdul Qadeer Khan after he filed a petition against the government, sources told the Pak Tribune.

The father of Pakistan's nuclear industry who allegedly sold nuclear secrets to North Korea and Iran complained in a plea to the court that he was "practically undergoing home detention" and that he was obligated to give the government 30 minutes' notice any time he planned to leave his home, the Tribune reported Tuesday.

The court's decision gives Khan permission to meet with friends and family throughout the country and also asks the federal government to clarify its position.
