The division bench comprising Justice Ali Baqar Najafi and Justice Sardar Ahmad Naeem observed that these orders were being passed in view of the urgency of the matter, while suspending conditions imposed by the government for removing Nawaz Sharif’s name from ECL.

The court, admitting the petition for regular hearing, observed that it would hear the matter in the third week of January 2020.

Shehbaz Sharif, through the petition, had challenged inclusion of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s name in the exit control list (ECL) and the condition imposed by the federal government for removing the same.
