The Ministry of Interior on Saturday (Feb 9) rejected plea of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Nawaz Sharif, Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar, seeking removal of their names from exit control list.
Earlier on October, 2108, they filed applications to seek permission to travel abroad, stating that Rule 2 of Exit From Pakistan Rules 2010 did not apply to them. In submitted application they had argued that they were not involved in corruption, misuse of authority, terrorism or any conspiracy and thus their names should be removed from ECL.
Nawaz Sharif, in July 2017,was disqualified by the Supreme Court as it investigated revelations that came out of the so-called Panama Papers, leaked documents from a Panamanian law firm. The documents indicated that Mr. Sharif’s family owned expensive properties in London, but he was unable to explain how he was able to afford them. On July 06, an accountability court sentenced the former PM, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (r) Safdar in Avenfield reference.
A court in Islamabad on December 23 sentenced the former prime minister to seven years in prison following Al-Azizia steel mills reference while he has been acquitted in the Flagship Investment reference. After hearing the decision Nawaz Sharif requested the court to send him in kot lakhpat jail.
