Pak anti­graft body wants travel ban on Nawaz Sharif

Hindustan Times ST (Jaipur) - - World -

Pak­istan’s Supreme Court on Wed­nes­day re­served its judg­ment in a case re­lated to the du­ra­tion of the dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion of for­mer pre­mier Nawaz Sharif even as the anti-graft watch­dog asked the govern­ment to bar the PML-N chief, his daugh­ter and son-in-law from leav­ing the coun­try.

Sharif had con­tended in the Supreme Court ear­lier this month that his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion un­der con­sti­tu­tional pro­vi­sions “is con­fined only to the elec­tion in ques­tion, and is not per­pet­ual”.

Sharif was forced to re­sign last July af­ter the apex court dis­qual­i­fied him. Some ex­perts said the dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion is life­long while oth­ers have said that he can­not be per­pet­u­ally barred from con­test­ing elec­tions. HTC
