ISLAMABAD: National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Monday sent its response over the matter related to withdrawing the name of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to Interior Ministry.

In a letter written to Interior Ministry, the NAB stated that the ministry has the authority to remove the names from ECL as it did before by removing the name of two individuals.

The NAB has informed that the federal government has the right to remove any ones name from the ECL and the MOI should deal this matter itself.

It is pertinent to mention here that MOI had written a letter to remove Nawazs name from the ECL.
