Responding to the development, Vadra said that he appreciated the deletion of his name from the VVIP list.

His full post on Facebook read:

“I appreciate that my name will not appear in the VVIP list anymore.

I hope this is a dead issue now and will not be used against me.

My Best wishes.”

Notably, Vadra had last week said that he was not a "VVIP or VIP" and he wanted his name to be removed from the "no-frisking" list.

He had also expressed doubts about "double standards" of the government as on the one hand it says his name must be removed from the list and on the other it does not remove it from there.

He had added that it could also be part of a "conspiracy" to malign his image.
