Lahore High Court (LHC) will conduct hearing on the plea seeking removal of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz’s name from Exit Control List (ECL) today (Dec 23).
Maryam Nawaz filed a plea in the LHC expressing that the government has not yet decided to exclude her name from the ECL. She further said: “The court ordered the government to decide this matter within a week which has completed now”, adding that the court should give order to remove her name from the ECL.
Earlier, the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) two-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najaf, on Monday (Dec 9) asked the government to make a final decision about removing the name of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz from the Exit Control List (ECL) within the next seven days.
On the other hand, federal government has decided, not to allow Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Vice President, Maryam Nawaz to travel abroad. Senior lawyer of PTI, Dr. Babar Awan while talking exclusively to local news channel, made it clear that Maryam will face a big no, as subcommittee of the federal cabinet that deals with ECL cases rejected her plea. “The rules concerning placement of the name of persons on Exit Control List [ECL] do not allow the government to entertain her application to remove her name from the no-fly list,” said Babar Awan.
“In fact the subcommittee is part of the cabinet and a formal announcement to bar Maryam from travelling abroad will be made by the federal cabinet in its meeting [on Tuesday],” Mr Awan said.
