Raja asks govt to remove his name from ECL

 ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has requested the Interior Ministry to remove his name from the Exit Control List (ECL), sources said on Sunday. Sources said that Raja has written a letter to the Interior Ministry on February 24, in which he requested the ministry to remove his name from the ECL. The former PM said that he had not done any serious crime or violated the constitution that his name was placed in the list. He said being a former prime minister, he has been invited for various functions abroad but due to this restriction, he was unable to participate in international events.  Raja said he respects the courts of the country and would be present before the court whenever summons. The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had sent a summary to the Interior Ministry asking it to put the name of ex-prime minister and former finance minister Shaukat Tareen on the ECL in the Rs 22 billion RPP scam case.
