ECL list to be revamped, several recommendations made

ISLAMABAD – The Ministry of Interior has decided to revamp the Exit Control List (ECL).

The minstry has recommended to abolish the role of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and sought to replace the words ‘competent authority’ with interior secretary.

The authority to place names on the list should reside with the interior secretary instead of cabinet or judiciary and persons under investigation or scrutiny should not be put on ECL, it recommended.
