Maryam won’t be allowed to travel abroad, says Pak

Islamabad

The Pakistan government has denied permission to PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz to travel abroad, saying those involved in any economic crime and institutional fraud could not be allowed to leave the country, according to a media report on Monday.

\Maryam, the 46-year-old daughter of Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, was placed on the no-fly list in August 2018.

“The rules concerning placement of the name of persons on Exit Control List (ECL) do not allow the government to entertain her application to remove her name from the no-fly list,” Babar Awan, senior lawyer and aide to the prime minister on legal affairs, was quoted as saying by the Dawn News.
