FIA Stops Former Premier’s Son From Flying To Dubai
Abdullah Khaqan Abbasi—the son of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, had arrived Islamabad airport to take flight EK-613 to Dubai scheduled for 9:30 am.
ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint/UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News-Sept 12th, 2020) Abdullah Khaqan Abbasi, the son of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, was offloaded from a Dubai-bound fight at Islamabad on Saturday.
Abdullah was told that NAB recommended his name for placement on Exit Control List (ECL) for his alleged role in LNG terminal case. He had reached Islamabad airport to take flight EK-613 to Dubai scheduled for 9: 30 am.
Abbasi was accused by the bureau of awarding LNG Terminal-1 contract in a non-transparent way.
Former Finance Minister Miftah Ismail and others were also among others who had been named in the case. The reference moved against them was currently being scrutinized and would be sent to an accountability court after it is approved by the registrar’s office.
The former premier said that he is being politically victimised by NAB. He hasn’t submitted his formal reply in the case as the reference is still being evaluated.
