According to sources, the NAB in a response to a letter penned by the Interior Ministry has advised seeking a legal opinion from the Law Ministry over the matter of removing Nawaz Sharif’s name from the ECL.
“Several cases are under trial against Nawaz Sharif, we cannot give positive response unconditionally over the matter”, the letter reads.

Sources quoted PM Khan as saying that the former premier’s name was put on the no-fly list on the bureau’s recommendation and thus, its nod of approval would be required for removal of the name.
He had made these remarks while chairing a meeting of party spokespersons in Islamabad.
