KARACHI: Supermodel Ayyan Ali has approached the Sindh High Court, asking for the removal of her name from the Exit Control List (ECL).
Making the interior ministry and in-charge Jinnah International Airport as respondents, Ayyan’s lawyer contended her inclusion in the ECL violated fundamental rights in light of Article 18 of the Constitution.
Earlier on December 1, a customs court in Rawalpindi returned Ayyan’s passport after she submitted two surety bonds worth Rs1 million each, and a document of personal guarantee.
The supermodel was arrested by customs officials from Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Islamabad on March 14 after $506,800 were recovered from her luggage. She was released from Adiala Jail in Rawalpindi after almost four months in detention.
She was indicted in the money laundering case but denies the charges.
