Bureaucratic impediments delay departure of Nawaz Sharif

Nawaz Sharif

Lahore: In a dramatic turn of events, the Pakistan government has delayed the removal of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s name from the no-fly list, thus forcing a change in his plan to leave for London for treatment on Sunday. Both the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the Ministry of Interior couldn’t arrive at a decision on Saturday regarding the removal of the name of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo from the Exit Control List (ECL). “Sharif was due to leave for London on Sunday morning on a PIA flight along with his brother Shehbaz Sharif. All arrangements were finalised but at the eleventh hour, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government played a trick and did not remove his name from the ECL,” a source told Dawn news. He recalled that the government on Friday had stated that removal of the former leader’s name from the ECL was just a formality. (IANS)
