Sharif in UK to meet ailing wife
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
