Sindh High Court (SHC) allowed Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Faryal Talpur to travel abroad to meet her daughter, 24News HD TV reported, Friday. 

PPP lawmaker moved the plea in SHC to get her name removed from the Exit Control List (ECL).

Sister of former President of Pakistan stated in her plea that her daughter Ayesha Talpur is receiving education in the United Kingdom (UK) and she wanted to travel abroad as her daughter’s health has worsened.

She sought one-time permission to move to the UK for taking care of her daughter for one week.

National Accountability Bureau (NAB) prosecutor in his argument before the court said that her name is placed on the ECL, but now NAB has no objection over one time visit of the lawmaker to abroad.

After no objection from the NAB, the SHC allowed Faryal Talpur and directed her to submit Rs2.5 million in court as a surety bond.

The bench showed anger over no response from the Interior Ministry and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA). 

The court directed to send a copy of the order to the secretary interior and Director General (DG) FIA personally by today.

Following her ECL removal plea, the SHC issued notices to the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman and Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) director-general (DG) and Interior Ministry
