Govt decides to put all 172 suspects in fake bank accounts on ECL

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday announced that the federal cabinet has decided to place on the exit control list (ECL) all 172 suspects named in a joint investigation team’s report in the fake bank accounts case.

“I was watching [PPP co-chairperson] Asif Ali Zardari say that he does not take the JIT seriously,” recalled the minister. “Hopefully, he will take it seriously after today. In the upcoming days he will know the seriousness of this inquiry.

“This is not purana Pakistan where the two big [players] make a deal. Now, each and every penny will be accounted for.”

Chaudhry explained that the decision was taken because “this money belongs to the people of Pakistan.”
