Nawaz, his daughter Maryam and his (retd) Safdar had all requested for their names to be removed from the ECL in October last year - a request which was rejected by on February 9.

The trio had claimed that Rule 2 of Exit From Rules 2010 did not apply to them, as they were not involved in corruption, misuse of authority et al, reports Geo news.

The three had been convicted by an accountability court in in July last year, which sentenced to 11 years, Maryam to eight years and Safdar to a year in prison each.
