ISLAMABAD, FEB 9 (IANS) | Publish Date: 2/9/2019 12:33:52 PM IST

Pakistan’s Interior Ministry on Saturday rejected pleas of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Muhammad Safdar seeking removal of their names from the Exit Control List (ECL).

In October last year, Sharif, his daughter and son-in-law had separately written letters to the ministry stating that Rule 2 of Exit From Pakistan Rules 2010 did not apply to them as they “were not involved in corruption, misuse of authority, terrorism or any conspiracy” and thus their names should be removed from ECL.
According to the News International, all the three were informed about the rejection of their applications. The report cited anti-corruption body’s sources as saying that now all the three had no other option but to approach the court for the sake of removing their names from ECL.
The decision to place the names of the former Premier, his daughter and son-in-law was taken during the first federal Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan on August 20, 2018.
