ISLAMABAD: The federal cabinet on Monday added Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi to the Exit Control List (ECL) due to their involvement in the illegal transfer of 190 million pounds in the Al-Qadir Trust case.
Following the recommendation of NAB Rawalpindi, the cabinet approved the inclusion of the names of Imran Khan and Bushra Bibi in the exit control list through a circular summary.
Earlier, the federal government decided to add the names of 80 people, including PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his wife Bushra Bibi, to the no-fly list.
Those included in the no-fly list and barred from travelling abroad include Imran Khan, Bushra Bibi PTI leaders Murad Saeed, Maleeka Bukhari, Fawad Chaudhry and Hammad Azhar.
The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had launched an investigation against Imran Khan, Bushra Bibi and others for the alleged gain of hundreds of canals of land in the name of Al Qadir University Trust, which reportedly caused a loss of 190 million pounds to the national exchequer.
As per the charges, the Khan and others accused allegedly adjusted Rs50 billion — 190 million pounds at the time — sent by Britain’s National Crime Agency (NCA) to the government.
Former PM Imran Khan registered Trust for Al-Qadir University Project on Dec 26, 2019.
