PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif's name will be placed on the Exit Control List today, Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed said Thursday.

Rasheed said this while addressing a press conference in Islamabad. He said politicians all over the world try to reach their country, but Pakistani politicians try to run away from it.

"[We] are placing Shehbaz Sharif's name on the ECL," the minister said. "The summary will be circulated today."

The placement of a person's name on the list bars them from leaving the country.

A sub-committee of the federal cabinet recommended placing Shehbaz's name on the ECL Wednesday. The recommendation was made on the request of the National Accountability Bureau.

The cabinet approved the request Thursday. The PML-N president is facing multiple corruption references filed by NAB.

On May 7, the Lahore High Court granted permission to Sharif to travel abroad for medical treatment. He had told the court that he has been battling cancer and has an appointment with his doctor on May 20 in London.

As the UK has imposed a travel ban on Pakistan, Shehbaz was supposed to fly to Qatar, spend 10 days there and then leave for London.

He was, however, offloaded from a flight to Doha at Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport on May 8.
