SHC orders removal of Sharjeel Memon’s name from ECL

October 4, 2022 11:19 AM


What can be described as a big relief for the PPP leader and Sindh Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon, the Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday ordered the permanent removal of his name from the Exit Control List (ECL), reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

A two-member bench of the SHC, headed by Justice KK Agha, gave the decision on the review petition filed by Sharjeel in a corruption case against him and others.

Earlier during the hearing of Memon’s petition for the removal of his name from the no-fly list in the corruption case of Rs6 billion, Raj Ali Wahid Advocate, counsel for the PPP leader, said that the court had ordered putting his client’s name on the ECL at the time of approval of his bail. “Now the situation is that Memon has to seek permission from the authorities every time he goes abroad,” he said, adding that his client had been regularly attending hearings at a trial court. 

“Therefore, it is my request to the court to delete Memon’s name from the ECL for good,” he added.  

Interestingly, the counsel representing the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the federal government in the case also seconded PPP leader’s plea.
