Supreme Court orders Removal of Ayyan Ali’s Name From ECL

The Supreme Court (SC), upholding an earlier Sindh High Court ruling, directed the Interior Ministry to strike supermodel Ayyan Ali’s name off the Exit Control List (ECL) on Wednesday.

After the Sindh High Court (SHC) directed authorities to remove Ayyan’s name from the ECL earlier in March, Islamabad customs collectors challenged the decision in the apex court.

The apex court disposed off the petition, observing that the constitution does not allow for restriction of citizen’s movements.

The SC said there was no reason her name should remain on the ECL as she had regularly been attending hearings pertaining to a case of currency smuggling at the customs court in Rawalpindi and cooperating with law enforcement authorities.
