The Interior Minister says that a notification to this effect has been issued and the relevant departments have been informed about it accordingly.
ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-May 17th, 2021) Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said the name of PML (N) President Shahbaz Sharif has been put on the Exit Control List (ECL) after the cabinet approval.
Sheikh Rashid said a notification to this effect has been issued and the relevant departments have been informed about it accordingly.
He expressed these words while addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Monday.
Citing the reasons for adding Shahbaz Sharif's name to the ECL, Sheikh Rashid said five members of Sharif family are already absconders and residing in London. He said it would have been difficult to bring Shahbaz Sharif back home like his elder brother if he was also allowed to travel abroad.
He said there was also a possibility that he could temper the evidence or use the influence on the approvers in the case if he was permitted to leave the country.
