Shahzeb’s lawyer requests court to remove his client’s name from ECL

Shahzeb Hasan

Lahore High Court has demanded an answer from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and Interior Ministry on a plea against putting Shahzeb Hasan’s name in Exit Control List (ECL).

Shahzeb Hasan is under investigation for being allegedly involved in spot fixing in Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Justice Yawar Ali heard Shahzeb’s appeal and expressed his anger at the government for not being able to submit their reply. He further ordered the government to submit their reply in the next hearing at any cost.

He further ordered the officer looking after government affairs to present all the documents due to which they are putting his name in ECL.

Shahzeb’s lawyer said that his client is being investigated by the tribunal so he cannot be termed guilty yet and is not subjected to any action against the law.

He further told that his name is included in the ECL against the law on PCB’s recommendation, though there is no case against his name.

His lawyer requested the court to remove his name from the ECL so that he can fly to England to meet his family.

The court will give its verdict after hearing PCB’s reply on August 7.
