Maryam Nawaz files plea for removal of name form ECL
Maryam Nawaz files plea for removal of name form ECL

Lahore, Dec 8 (TIWN) Maryam Nawaz, the daughter of former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has filed a petition in the Lahore High Court (LHC) seeking the removal of her name from the Exit Control List (ECL).

In her petition filed on Saturday, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader argued that her name was placed on the ECL without notice and providing her with an opportunity of hearing through a memorandum dated August 20, 2018, reports Dawn news.  Maryam is currently free on bail in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) corruption case, in which she is a suspect, but her name remains on the no-fly list.  Her father travelled to London last month after the government and courts granted him permission to fly abroad on medical grounds.  The petition states that the recommendations by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) were "acted upon in a mechanical manner and without judicious application of mind in contravention of the law declared by the superior courts".
