Former prime minister and Opposition Leader in the Senate Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani along with his daughter have been stopped by the authorities at Islamabad International Airport from travelling to Italy, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Sources told 24News TV channel that the authorities stopped Yousaf Raza Gilani and his daughter from taking a flight to Italy to attend a conference. 

The father and daughter duo had to take the flight to Italy to attend a conference when they were barred from travelling as Gilani’s name was found on the Exit Control List (ECL). 

Former PM Yousaf Raza Gilani was travelling on a diplomatic passport.

Sources claimed that when Yousaf Raza Gilani showed his passport to the immigration staff, he was told that he could not travel abroad as his name was on the ECL.

Pertinent to note that the name of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani was put on the ECL at the request of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) in 2016.

Gilani’s name was sent to NAB in a case pertaining to the appointment of the head of the Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA).
