LHC Orders To Remove Shehbaz Sharif’s Name From ECL

LAHORE: Lahore High Court on Tuesday issued directives to remove the name of former chief minister Punjab Mian Shehbaz Sharif’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL).

As per the details, a three-judge bench headed by Justice Malik Shehzad heard on a petition filed by PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif.

During the hearing, Shehbaz’s counsel stated that Shehbaz, whenever summoned, has appeared before the Accountability Watchdogs.

When questioned by the court over ongoing inquiry in assets beyond known sources of income case against the PML-N president, lawyer briefed that NAB began the inquiry on October 23, 2018 over suspicious transaction into the account of Shehbaz Sharif.

“Even in Ayan Ali’s case, the court removed her name from ECL, however, Shehbaz’s name was put on the list right after his bail plea was approved. Seems like NAB is kidding with us, whereas Shehbaz came back to Pakistan, leaving her ailing wife behind”, the counsel stated.
