Nawaz Sharif leaves for London to see ailing wife

On 14 February, NAB had sent a similar letter to the ministry, but the then PML-N government did not place the Sharifs' names on the ECL

Lahore: Ousted Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday left for London along with his daughter to see his ailing wife, Kulsoom Nawaz, despite the country’s anti-graft body’s request to put their names on the Exit Control List (ECL) fearing they may not return to face corruption cases in court.

Sharif, 68, and his daughter left for London via Qatar from the Lahore airport on June 14 morning.

“Leaving for London. We will be back next week. Can’t wait to meet and hug Ami (mother),” Maryam tweeted.

Kulsoom is in an advanced stage of throat cancer and is undergoing treatment in London.

On the other hand, the caretaker government has neither rejected nor accepted the National Accountability Bureau’s to place the Sharif family members on the ECL. The caretaker government could not decide whether to entertain NAB’s request or not in this regard, an official of the interior ministry said.

Former PML-N chief Sharif, his children and son-in-law are facing three corruption charges in the accountability court for money laundering and illegal offshore holdings.

The trial is in the final stage as the has directed the trial court to conclude the case by 10 July. The corruption references against Sharif and his family were filed after his ouster as prime minister in July last year in the Panama Papers case.

Sharif had complained of not getting a fair trial. He alleged the court had already decided to pass a verdict against him before the 25 July general election.
