Minister for Interior of Pakistan, Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad has announced today that the government will cancel former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s passport on 16 February. The interior minister was questioned about the former Prime Minister’s passport by a journalist, to which he promptly responded, adding that he wasn’t even sure of Nawaz Sharif’s passport expiration.

Earlier in October, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had requested Sheikh Rasheed to cancel the former Prime Minister’s passport and to also ‘block’ his identity card.

“In view thereof, copies of the said court order and perpetual non-bailable warrant of arrest are forwarded for processing of blacklisting/cancellation of the passport and blockage/impounding of CNIC of the accused through the Ministry of Interior,” read a letter addressed to the Interior Minister by NAB.
