Pakistan Gov't Considers Placing Imran Khan on Exit Control List Amid Election Funding Row
According to the publication, other than the former cricket captain of Pakistan, ex-governors from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh provinces, Shah Farman, and Imran Ismail respectively are also set to be placed on the ECL.
The news of the move to put Khan and other PTI politicians on the ECL list came after the Pakistan Election Commission's judgment against PTI on Tuesday.
Notably, the prohibited funding case was filed by one of the founders of the PTI by the name of Akbar Sher Babar in 2014. He had accused the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf of misappropriation of party funds.
"The chairman of PTI for financial year 2008-2009 to 2012-13 has submitted form-1 which found to be grossly inaccurate on the basis of the financial statements obtained by this commission from the State Bank of Pakistan and other material available on record," the ECP report stated.
"The anti-Nawaz Sharif narrative was based on blatant lies and conspiracies but IK is guilty of startling, mind-boggling wrongdoings the evidence of which is irrefutable," she added.
