Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday has said that ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif can travel abroad for medical treatment after submitting indemnity bonds.
Talking to media outside Islamabad High Court (IHC), the special assistant said that guarantee was demanded from PML-N supremo to fulfill legal requirements.
The name of convict cannot be removed from Exit Control List (ECL), she said, adding that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan gave priority to humanity in Nawaz Sharif’s case.
