A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court (SC) asking to put the name of Asia Bibi on the Exist Control List (ECL).

Hafiz Ethasim Ahmed has filed the petition in which the Interior Ministry, the FIA and the government of Punjab have been made party.

He viewed in the submitted application that the foreign powers, especially Europe, was in favor of the early release of Asia Bibi from jail and after release, she was likely going to travel aboard, so her name should put on ECL.

He also appealed to the court should put the name of Asia Babi on ECL and also confiscate her passport.
