On February 28, Shehbaz Sharif, the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly, filed a petition in the court to have his name removed from the Exit Control List.

The PML-N president and former chief minister of Punjab named the federal government, NAB, and FIA as respondents in his petition.

His petition said that as the leader of the opposition and the head of one of the country’s largest political parties, his name should not be on the ECL. He also said that the government had put his name on the ECL illegally. According to the law, restricting someone’s movement is illegal, he argued.

His name was added to the no-fly list on February 22 in the Ashiyana Iqbal Housing case, for which NAB had arrested him on October 5, 2018. He was released on bail on February 14 after the Lahore High Court accepted his bail plea.
