Sharif family on ECL, petition filed in Supreme Court
LAHORE – Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son in law Captain (r) Safdar‘s names on Exit Control List (ECL) has been challenged in Lahore Supreme Court Registry on Monday.
The petition submitted by the Watan Party chairman Barrister Zafrullah Khan, claimed that Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar are already imprisoned and placing their names on ECL is retribution.
The plea statement also requested the court to exclude names of Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (r) Safdar from ECL.
The court should issue orders to shift Nawaz and Maryam to their personal residence after declaring it sub-jail, plea added.
Moreover, the federal government, Punjab government, Mian Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are made party in the petition.
On August 22, Sharif family’s names were placed on ECL on National Accountability Bureau (NAB) request.
