LAHORE – Federal government gives another blow to the former PM Nawaz Sharif as it challenges Lahore High Court Authority to remove former PM Name from the Exit Control List.
The federal government has on Friday submitted its reply in the Lahore High Court (LHC) in case pertaining to name removal of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif from the Exit Control List (ECL).
Justice Ali Baqir Najfi and Justice Sardar Naeem conducted the hearing on the plea filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif to remove elder brother and party supremo Nawaz Sharif’s name from the ECL without any conditionality imposed by the federal government.
Advocate Amjad Pervaiz took the stance that the interior ministry has not removed Nawaz Sharif’s name from the no-fly list despite his bail approval by the LHC on medical grounds.
The LHC inquired from Nawaz Sharif’s counsel whether the federal government had submitted its reply, to which advocate Amjad Pervaiz replied that the response has been submitted.
The court directed to issue a copy of the reply to the plaintiff’s lawyer and offered to grant time to read the answer if required.
It is pertinent here to mention that the answer submitted by the federal government comprises nine pages and states that the government holds the authority to impose condition according to the law.
