IHC to hear petition seeking Nawaz’s name on ECL on Aug 7 IHC to hear petition seeking Nawaz’s name on ECL on Aug 7

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will hear a petition seeking for placing Nawaz Sharif on the Exit Control List (ECL) on Monday.

In a petition filed on Thursday, the petitioner plead for putting Nawaz, his children, son-in-law, and Ishaq Dar on the ECL. The petition has also pleaded freezing of bank accounts of the respondents.

On July 28, the Supreme Court, in its judgment in the Panama Papers case, disqualified Nawaz as prime minister and referred all cases to the National Accountability Bureau to file references against them.

Sharif was disqualified under Article 62 (1) (f) of the Constitution over his failure to disclose un-withdrawn receivables constituting assets from a UAE-based company.

The ECL is maintained by the Interior Ministry to ensure criminals or suspects wanted for various crimes do not escape the country.
