ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet Tuesday placed the names of 10 individuals, including Shahzad Akbar, on the Exit Control List (ECL).

A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s media wing said the federal cabinet, which met with Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif in the chair, also approved placing names on the ECL and removing 22 names from the list.

Sources said the government was not intentionally disclosing the names of the individuals placed on the ECL and struck off.

The sources said that the name of Shahzad Akbar was put on the ECL at the request of the National Accountability Bureau.

Shahzad Akbar had left for Dubai on April 17 from where he departed for London five days after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) had suspended FIA orders of putting his name on the stop list.
