Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he is ready to visit London for the repatriation of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif if needed.
The major announcement was made by PM Imran Khan, in an interview to a private TV news channel.
The prime minister maintained he is ready to visit United Kingdom to meet PM Boris Johnson to bring back PML-N supremo if needed.
Last month, federal cabinet had decided to bring back Pakistan Muslim League-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif from London with Prime Minister Imran Khan saying that the government would use all legal options for the purpose.
The prime minister had said that they would bring back Nawaz Sharif with the help of British authorities. “He left the country using his illness as an excuse,” Imran Khan blamed and said he had to return to the country and face courts.
Meanwhile, addressing a press conference here, Federal Information Minister Shibli Faraz said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif will be in Kot Lakhpat Jail by January 15. Shibli Faraz said, “They are expert in corruption and looted the nation’s wealth with impunity.”
He added that those saying “vote ko izzat do [give respect to vote]”, a slogan used by PML-N, gave respect to money during their years in power.
The federal minister also spoke about the CCTV footage of Captain Safdar’s arrest from a Karachi hotel, obtained by the media, saying that the broken door was not seen as claimed by the PML-N.
“As per the footage, Captain Safdar seemed comfortable in police custody,” said Faraz. “Their lies have now been exposed.”
The minister maintained that whatever happened in Sindh the PPP government was responsible not the federal authorities.
“We [federal government] did not arrest Captain Safdar, Sindh Police arrested him,” said Faraz. He said that the opposition parties are not “sincere with each other” and playing politics. He stated that the contradictory claims made by Maryam and the Sindh government made it seem as though PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had taken revenge for his mother.
