Shafaqna Pakistan:The government is likely to remove Nawaz Sharif’s name from the Exit Control List (ECL) within the next 48 days, paving the way for his treatment abroad.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif approached the Interior Ministry to get Nawaz Sharif’s name removed from the ECL.
Geo News reported that the authorities at the ministry were waiting for formal directives from the federal government.
Sources said that Shehbaz Sharif filed an application seeking to remove his elder brother’s name from the list.
The former prime minister could not travel abroad before his name is removed from the ECL.

The sources said that the authorities are reviewing the application filed by the PMLN leader.
Nawaz Sharif was put on the Exit Control List on the request of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
Last month he was shifted to Services Hospital with multiple health conditions.
Before his release on bail, the three time former prime minister had been serving a jail term in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat jail.
His daughter Maryam Nawaz, who was recently released on bail, on Friday said that Nawaz Sharif was seriously ill and he should go abroad for treatment.
