LHC Orders Nasir Jamshed’s Name to be Removed From ECL

Former Pakistan opening-batsman Nasir Jamshed’s name has been cleared from the Exit-Control List (ECL), following Lahore High Court’s (LHC) ruling on Tuesday.

The LHC gave its verdict and termed it unlawful to name Nasir in the ECL after Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) handed a 10-year ban to him.

Nasir’s name was put on ECL upon the recommendation of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

The 29-year-old was found guilty of his involvement in a spot-fixing scandal that emerged during the second season of Pakistan Super League (PSL).

An independent adjudicator, Justice (retd.) Mian Hamid Farooq, upheld the ban imposed on Nasir Jamshed for his involvement and called it “perfectly justified” in 2018.

Nasir was banned for voilating PCB’s anti-corruption code of conduct under Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 2.1.3, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4.

The charges are as following:

1. Deliberately performing poorly in games
2. Ensuring specific incidents occur during matches
3. Agreeing to take brides on multiple occasions
4. Promoting any of the above charges
5. Lying to the the cricket board’s vigilance team

Following his 10-year ban, PCB requested to include Nasir’s name on the blacklist, which was subsequently rejected. Mian Hamid, residing adjudicator, ended the restriction imposed on Jamshed from applying for a job to other departments of the cricket board.

The decision announced by LHC will now allow Nasir Jamshed to travel in and out from Pakistan.
