ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Oct 27th, 2020) A good news for PML-N President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif as the country's top court has rejected National Accountability Bureau's plea to place his name on Exit Control List (ECL).
A SC two-member bench led by Justice Mushir Alam passed the order on petition of Anti-Corruption Watchdog.
NAB suggested name of Shehbaz Sharif to the ministry of interior for placement on ECL. However, the Lahore High Court ordered to remove his name from ECL. The NAB challenged LHC's decision before the Supreme Court and pleaded the top court to order placement of his name on ECL.
Meanwhile, Shehbaz Sharif's defamation suit against Prime Minsiter Imran Khan was taken up by a local court in Lahore which was adjourned till next date without major development. According to the reports, a plea was moved by the counsel of PM Khan that record of Shehbaz Sharif's references should be summoned. It said that the proceedings in this case lingered on only because Shehbaz Sharif failed to present record of the cases and references against him before this court.
The hearing was adjourned and the next date was in office.
