NAB tells Interior Ministry to put Shehbaz on ECL
The Interior Ministry Tuesday received a letter from National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Chairman Javed Iqbal to put the name of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on the ECL.
Law minister and official concerned will attend the meeting. The interior minister will hold a press conference.
On Saturday, FIA got Shehbaz Sharif off a Doha-bound plane at Lahore International Airport. On Friday, the Lahore High Court allowed the PML-N president to travel abroad for medical treatment and also ordered the removal of his name from the blacklist.
Shehbaz was set to leave for Doha from Lahore Airport when FIA officials took him out of the flight as, according to them, his name was not removed from the blacklist. Also, the government decided to challenge the LHC verdict that allowed the opposition leader to travel abroad.
