Govt decides to include Maryam Nawaz in ECL over Chaudhry Sugar Mills case

F.P. Report

ISLAMABAD: The incumbent government has decided to include Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz’s name in the Exit Control List (ECL) in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills corruption case.

It is pertinent to mention that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Lahore wrote a letter to the federal government to put Maryam Nawaz’s name on the no-fly list.

According to details, the anti-graft watchdog maintained that investigations against the PML-N leader are ongoing in the Chaudhry Sugar Mills (CSM) case and her name should be put on the ECL to eliminate the possibility of her going abroad.

It is pertinent here to mention that an Accountability Court (AC) in Lahore had granted Maryam Nawaz exemption from appearance till reference is filed by the anti-corruption body in the aforementioned case.

Maryam Nawaz’s name is already on the ECL in the case related to her Avenfield case.

On July 6, 2018, accountability judge Mohammad Bashir had convicted former premier Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz in Avenfield properties reference and sentenced them 10 years and 07 years imprisonment, respectively.
