KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected the plea of PPP leader Sharjeel Memon to remove his name from exit control list..
The petition to remove Memon’s name from the ECL was postponed for an indefinite period.
The federal government had opposed Memon’s petition.
On March 19, Memon was taken into custody from Islamabad airport by personnel of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) immediately after his arrival from Dubai after two years.
Addressing a press conference afterwards, he had remarked he was going abroad for medical purposes and had prior permission from Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah.
However, his name was put on the ECL, following which he contacted the SHC over the matter.
“Putting my name on the ECL is an extreme measure,” said Memon.
The PPP leader said that a reference was filed against him, although the SHC approved his bail.
Memon was living in a self-imposed exile for more than two years in Dubai and London
