LAHORE – The Supreme Court has been moved seeking an order to put the names of ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family on Exit Control List (ECL).
A movement, Khudai Khidmatgar (Servants of God), has submitted an application to apex court Lahore Registry asking the court to pass an order in this regard.
The applicant stated that the top court had disqualified Nawaz Sharif for concealing his job, besides asking the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to file references against Sharif family within six weeks initiating criminal investigations against them.
NAB chief has yet not ordered to arrest Nawaz Sharif and his family, but he can issue orders to detain them since they are facing criminal inquiry under NAB Ordinance, he took a stance.
He pleaded the court to place the names of Sharif family on ECL barring them from going abroad.
On Monday, the NAB following the orders of the apex court in Panama verdict decided to file four references against Nawaz Sharif Hassan Nawaz, Hussain Nawaz, Maryam Nawaz, Capt (retd) Safdar and Ishaq Dar.
