ISLAMABAD : Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif should be placed on the Exit Control List (ECL), argued Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday.
Speaking to the media outside the Supreme Court, Chaudhry said Nawaz’s frequent travels are delaying the corruption proceedings against him.
“The people of Pakistan need a logical conclusion of the case,” he said.
Giving the example of Pakistan Peoples Party leader Sharjeel Memon’s comments on his arrest that Nawaz’s son-in-law is given bail by a trial court but he isn’t, Chaudhry commented that a commoner feels that the Sharif family is given preferential treatment after hearing such things.
Addressing the media separately, Federal Privatisation Minister Daniyal Aziz said there is no deadline in the PTI leader Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen disqualification case in the Supreme Court.
“We were told that investigations have been completed but now the respondent is searching for evidence,” he claimed.
Later, State Interior Minister Tallal Chaudhry said Tareen is a specialist in white-collar crime.
“If he is not punished by the court for corruption and misdirection then no one in Pakistan should serve any criminal sentence,” he added.
