Following the recommendation of the National Accountability Bureau, the interior ministry on Friday (April 26) placed the names of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Miftah Ismail on the Exit Control List.
Other people placed on no-fly list are including Imran-ul-Haq, Uzma Adil Khan, Mubeen Saulat, Shahid Islamuddin and Amir Naseem’s. The letter states that the accused face charges of misuse of authority and causing losses to the national exchequer. “The amount involved in the case is Rs36.969 billion,” states the ministry’s letter.
As per details, Abbasi is accused of illegally awarding a 15-year contract for a liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal when he was the petroleum minister in former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s cabinet. The case was closed by NAB in 2016 but was reopened in 2018. Ismail is also under investigation in connection with the LNG corruption case.
