Sharif in UK to meet ail­ing wife

Deccan Chronicle - - WORLD -

La­hore, June 14: ExPak­istan prime min­is­ter Nawaz Sharif on Thursday left for Lon­don along with his daugh­ter Maryam Nawaz 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 this morn­ing. “Leav­ing for Lon­don. We will be back next week. Can’t wait to meet and hug Ami,” Maryam tweeted. Kul­soom has an ad­vanced stage of throat can­cer.

On the other hand, the gov­ern­ment has nei­ther re­jected nor ac­cepted the Na­tional Ac­count­abil­ity Bureau’s move to place the fam­ily mem­bers on the ECL. — PTI
