Govt leaves the door open for Nawaz’s return as passport expires

ISLAMABAD: (HRNW) Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said on Tuesday absconding former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s passport will expire tonight.

Addressing a news conference, the minister declared that the former premier’s passport will not be renewed and that the government could issue an emergency travel document on his request for returning back to the country.

He said the PML-N supremo and his daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s names have been on the Exit Control List (ECL) since August 20, 2018. Their names were put on the no-fly list on the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request, he added.

Sheikh Rasheed said if the former premier desires to return to Pakistan, he could be issued emergency travel document within 72 hours but he has made no such request as yet.
