Earlier,Lahore high court ordered to remove former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ’s name from Exit control list, and allowed him to travel abroad.
Former Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif has submitted a written affidavit guaranteeing the return of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
During yesterday’s hearing, the federal government urged the court to maintain its condition of seeking a security bond from the former prime minister.
Appearing on behalf of the federal government, Additional Attorney General Ishtiaq Khan had objected to the maintainability of the petition and requested that the petition be dismissed for being “non-maintainable”.
He contended that Nawaz should approach the Islamabad High Court instead of the removal of his name from the ECL, as the federal government had placed his name on the list and the court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the plea.
