Interior ministry places Nawaz, Maryam on ECL

ISLAMABAD: The interior ministry has placed the names of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif on the Exit Control List.
Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz have been in London since June 15. They had gone to spend Eid with former first lady Begum Kulsoom Nawaz. A day before their arrival in London, Begum Kulsoom suffered a cardiac arrest and has since been on life support at the Harley Street Clinic.
On the other hand, an accountability court handed 10 years to the former PM and seven to his daughter in the Avenfield corruption case on Friday. The two then announced that they will return to Pakistan on Friday, July 13.
The court ruling has disqualified Maryam Nawaz and her husband, Capt (retd) Safdar, from contesting the election on July 25. The former PM was disqualified in 2017 from holding public office.
On Monday, Capt (retd) Safdar was sent to Adiala Jail. Two days prior to his arrest, his name was placed on the black list.
