Federal cabinet rejects Interior Ministry request over ECL issue

ISLAMABAD - Federal Cabinet has ruled out a request by the Interior Ministry to remove names of twenty suspects from the Exit Control List in the fake bank accounts case.

This was stated by Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain while addressing a news briefing about Federal Cabinet 's decisions in Islamabad this evening.

He said since the list includes the names of several PPP big wigs and others who are directly involved in fake bank accounts and money laundering matters, the Cabinet decided to constitute a committee to review the matter.

The Minister said the Law Ministry informed the cabinet that no formal or written verdict has yet been received from the Supreme Court on the subject so any further proceedings about the ECL issue should be deferred for the time being.
