Interior ministry denies placing Zardari, Faryal on no-fly list

ISLAMABAD: The interior ministry on Monday denied placing Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and his sister Faryal Talpur on a no-fly list.

Rejecting reports pertaining to the siblings being placed on a “stop list”, Interior Minister Azam Khan denied the existence of any such register. “There is no stop list,” he told The Express Tribune following the conclusion of a standing committee on interior affairs meeting. Khan, who also chairs the Exit Control List (ECL) sub-committee, also said the ministry had not received any directives barring Zardari and Talpur from travelling abroad.
