Govt reply sought over Maryam petition

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Wednesday directed the federal government to submit a written response to PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz’s request for the removal of her name from the no-fly list. A divisional bench of the LHC headed by Judge Tariq Abbassi heard a petition filed by Maryam Nawaz in which she has asked the LHC to return her passport and to order the government to take her name off the Exit Control List (ECL). During the hearing, the court was told by Maryam’s lawyer that his client had received a letter by the government on Tuesday night, denying to take her name off the ECL. – Agencies
