ISLAMABAD: The Interior Ministry on Wednesday permitted Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz to travel abroad, according to sources.
“Hamza had filed a one-time travel request. The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader had also submitted the request before a court in Lahore,” sources in the Interior Ministry said.
A one-time travel permission allows travel to foreign countries for 10 to 30 days.
Hamza’s name has been placed on the Exit Control List (ECL) on the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) request.
Earlier this month, the Lahore High Court granted permission to Hamza to travel abroad for a period of 10 days.
