Islamabad: The federal government has allowed senior PML-N leaders and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to go abroad only once.
According to details, a summary has been approved by the Interior Ministry, according to which the federal government has removed the name of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from the ECL and allowed him to fly abroad.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi wanted to go abroad to visit his ailing sister but his name was included in the ECL on the recommendation of NAB.
It is pertinent to mention here that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had filed a reference against nine suspects – including former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi – in the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) import contract case in an Islamabad’s accountability court.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was released on bail by the Islamabad High Court with a deposit of 10 million rupees.
