LAHORE: The names of ten members of Sharif family have been included in Exit Control List (ECL) today (Friday) in connection with money laundering case.
According to details, names of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and opposition leader in National Shehbaz Sharif’s wife and two sons have also been put on no-fly list.
The Federal Cabinet has approved the summary and banned those listed from traveling abroad until the case is closed.
On September 28, after the Lahore High Court (LHC) rejected his bail request, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) team arrested Shehbaz Sharif in a money laundering case.
The two judges of the Lahore High Court, consisting of Justice Sardar Ahmed Naim and Judge Farouk Haider, heard the defense.
PML-N President’s lawyer argued that Shehbaz Sharif saved more than 1 trillion rupees in the treasury and never received a salary from a member of the National Assembly.
He added that there was no evidence against Shehbaz Sharif in the money laundering case, and no witnesses accused the PML-N leader of wrongdoing.
