News Desk

The former Prime Minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) supremo, Nawaz Sharif will be in Pakistan’s jail by January 15 as efforts are underway to bring him back from London.

This has been stated by the Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz while addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Friday. He said Nawaz Sharif will be repatriated so that he could face his cases and answer for his assets.

The Information Minister has said that the government will not only punish the corrupt elements but will also recover the looted national wealth.

Senator Shibli Faraz further stated that the video footage of the arrest of Captain (retired) Safdar in Karachi showed that he was taken into custody by police in a respectable manner, which exposed the contradictory statements of the Sindh government and Maryam Safdar. He said that the Supreme Court has already declared Maryam Safdar a liar.

The Federal Minister said that Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Khawaja Asif and Rana Sanaullah, all are under the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) scrutiny and those who plundered money during their tenure are now talking about sanctity of vote. He said that the rulers who ruled the country for decades have been rejected by people, their politics has ended and their next abode is in jail for plundering the national wealth.

Shibli Faraz has said that Pakistan’s economy is reviving, showing positive indicators in various sectors. He said exports are on the rise; remittances are at record high level; and construction industry is fast flourishing.

“The record increase in remittances shows trust in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) government,” he added.
