Former Pak PM Nawaz Sharif, His Daughter Maryam Put On Exit Control List

The accountability court last week sentenced Sharif and Maryam respectively to 10 years and seven years of rigorous imprisonment in the Avenfield properties corruption case.

Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who were sentenced to prison in the Avenfield properties case last week, have been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL), the media reported on Tuesday.

Rachel Davies Teka, Head of Advocacy at Transparency International UK, said, "We are calling on the UK authorities to investigate the London-based assets identified in this conviction and ensure that Sharif and his family are no longer able to enjoy any luxury homes that are found to have been bought with the proceeds of corruption".

She said, "People fly out of the country to evade punishment but we are returning to face it."Nawaz Sharif has set a new benchmark by offering his arrest", she said emphasising that their sacrifices will not go in vain as they will benefit the future generations". "PML-N workers from across the country will gather in Lahore to welcome their leaders", she said.

Mr Sharif has said that he is not afraid of going to jail.

Maryam Nawaz's husband Captain (R) Safdar has already been arrested by National Accountability Bureau's (NAB) investigation team from Rawalpindi.

"Let me make it clear that the law enforcement agencies will arrest Nawaz and Maryam at the airport to implement the court's order", he said. The sentences will run concurrently which means the former prime minister will serve 10 years in jail.

Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz, who have been convicted by an accountability court in the Avenfield reference case, are scheduled to arrive on Friday July 13 in Lahore.

"Our workers can not be stopped by any hurdle", she said.
