The federal cabinet has approved the placement of the names of PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif’s daughters and wife on the no-fly list, it emerged on Friday.
Ten people named in cases against the PML-N leader have been put on the Exit Control List, including the aforesaid members of his family.
The approval was taken through a circulation summary, the report said, with sources adding that Shahbaz Sharif’s name was already on the list.
Meanwhile, the National Accountability Bureau has requested the Ministry of Interior to “cancel” former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s passport and “block” his national identity card, it emerged on Friday.
The NAB Rawalpindi has written to the ministry, asking the authorities to cancel the aforesaid documents of the PML-N supremo for his absence from the court and especially after being declared a proclaimed offender by an accountability court. “In view thereof, copies of the said court order and perpetual non-bailable warrant of arrest are forwarded for processing of blacklisting/cancellation of the passport and blockage / impounding of CNIC of the accused through the Ministry of Interior,” read a letter addressed to the NAB headquarter from its Rawlapindi office.
