ISLAMABAD: Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain (retd) Safdar’s name has been included on the blacklist, restricting him from travelling abroad. He was sentenced to one-year in prison a day earlier by an accountability court in a corruption case .
An accountability court sentenced former prime minister Nawaz to 10 years in jail, his daughter Maryam to seven years and Captain (retd) Safdar to one year.
They were sentenced in the Avenfield case.
NAB had earlier asked the court to place Captain (retd) Safdar’s name, as well as those of the rest of the Sharif family, on the ECL. The bureau officials believe Captain (retd) Safdar is likely to try to flee the country.
Captain (retd) Safdar was in Mansehra on Saturday morning. The Abbottabad DIG said they had not received any instructions to arrest the PML-N leader but added that he would be arrested the moment they receive the order from NAB.
