NAB files plea in SC to put Shehbaz’ name on ECL

Islamabad (Staff Report): The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Friday filed a petition in the Supreme Court, challenging a Lahore High Court (LHC) verdict ordering to remove Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL).


On March 26, the LHC ordered to remove Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president’s name from the ECL.

Shehbaz had approached the LHC challenging the decision of the federal government to place his name on the no-fly list.

The former Punjab chief minister was arrested by National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in October last year for alleged misuse of authority and involvement in the Ashiana Housing Scheme case.

His name was placed on the ECL in February.
