Not seeking asylum in the UK: Shehbaz Sharif

May 15, 2019
Says he will return before the budget session

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif says he is not seeking asylum in the UK.

"The selected prime minister lies day and night," Shehbaz told SAMAA TV in an interview in London. "He is wasting the nation's time by spreading disinformation."

If I had applied for asylum, they [the government] should show proof of it, he said responding to media reports of him seeking asylum in the UK.

The PML-N president added that he was in London for medical tests and will return to Pakistan before the budget session.

On February 14, the Lahore High Court granted bail to Shehbaz in the three NAB cases against him: the Ashiana Iqbal, Saaf Pani Company and Ramzan Sugar Mills cases.

The leader of the opposition in the National Assembly was arrested by NAB on October 5, 2018 for his involvement in the Ashiana-e-Iqbal Housing scam.

    When the last two government’s left no money what is the present government supposed to do ?
    If the treasury had not been looted we might not have had to go to IMF.
    I sometimes don’t understand the ignorance and stupidity of those people who make these comments. They seem to be happy to have political parties in government whose only role is is to fill their pockets.
    At last we have someone who is actually trying to do better for the country. So let’s try to support them and not continually criticize.

    Hi . First of all he should get medical check up done in Pakistan. Why do they come here. They always says people of Pakistan will hold them accountable. People of Pakistan already fed up with Sharif and Zardari monopoly. I don’t favour PTI either.
