Ayyan Ali name again included in ECL
21 April, 2016
ISLAMABAD: On the request of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and the Interior secretary, the federal government has re-included the name of super model Ayyan Ali in the exit control list (ECL) after briefly striking it off in compliance with a Supreme Court verdict issued last week.
An Interior Ministry notification announced Ayyan Ali’s name had been removed from the list a day after the supermodel requested the apex court to initiate contempt proceedings against the government for non-compliance against its April 13 order.
The SC in its judgement observed that there was no reason Ayyan’s name should remain on the ECL as she had regularly attended hearings pertaining to a case of currency smuggling at the customs court in Rawalpindi and had cooperated with law enforcement authorities.
