Pakistan government refuses to remove names of Nawaz Sharif, daughter, son-in-law from exit control list

The Pakistan government today rejected the request of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law seeking removal of their names from the Exit Control List (ECL), which is preventing them from flying abroad.
 

Local media reports said, in October last year, the three had separately applied to the Interior Ministry seeking removal of their names.
 
In their petitions, the trio argued that the Exit From Pakistan Rules 2010 did not apply to them as they were not involved in corruption, misuse of authority, terrorism or any conspiracy and thus their names should be removed from ECL.
 
The decision to place the names of the Sharif family on ECL was taken in August last year during a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan.
 
In July, an accountability court in Islamabad had convicted Sharif, Maryam and her husband in the Avenfield properties case and sentenced them to prison.
