NAB requests ministry to put name of Sharif on ECL

ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Wednesday requested the Interior Ministry to place on the Exit Control List (ECL), the names of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam, and son-in-law Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar.

The request was made by the anti-graft watchdog through the letters written to the interior ministry.

The name of an accused is put on the ECL so that he could not go abroad to avoid an investigation or a judicial process.

Neither Sharif nor Maryam or Safdar want to stay away from Pakistan as they wish to be comprehensively involved in politics in the country. The NAB move is part of the pressure tactics used against the Sharif family by different circles so that the former premier gives up his present aggressive campaign.

The interior ministry is unlikely to heed to the NAB’s request.

Then, the corruption buster may approach a court of law to get these names placed on the ECL.

However, before the impending decisions of the accountability court of Islamabad in the three references, Sharif and Maryam plan to shortly go to London to spend some time with his wife,
Begum Kulsoom who is undergoing treatment for cancer there.

But they will return after a few days and will be present in the accountability court at the time of announcement of judgments in these cases.

Sharif, who was removed from office after the Panama Papers case verdict last July, has been indicted in the three references related to London apartment and offshore companies.

Meanwhile, the NAB on Wednesday moved two supplementary references in the accountability court in support of the previous cases.
