Talking to media persons, Shahzad Akbar said that it is the law of the United Kingdom that a convicted person cannot be granted a visit visa and Pakistan has told Britain that PML-N supremo is a convicted person who has not received any medical treatment since arriving in the London. We have asked the UK to look into the matter and decide according to the law, he added.
