Former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said that he is leaving the trust of Allah in London for his sick wife. He said, "I am returning to Pakistan regardless of being thrown or hanged." On the other hand, the anti-corruption court has rejected his plea for transfer of the remaining two cases of corruption against Nawaz Sharif to another accountability court on Thursday.
Nawaz is expected to return to Pakistan on Friday. After one of the three cases of corruption (Avenue field property case) running against him after the Panama Paper leak, a corruption court has sentenced him to 11 years in prison. Sharif said that I am sad that sick wife has to leave the ventilator. He said, "I am returning with Mariam to fulfil the promise of honouring the vote."
There is a general election on July 25 in the country. The former Prime Minister said that he will not stop now, whether he be thrown into prison or hanged. Commenting on the Anfield case, Sharif said that it has been written in the verdict that he has been acquitted of charges of corruption. He said, "I am coming to repay the country's debt, it has elected me three times as Prime Minister." He said that former dictator General Pervez Musharraf is absconding and nobody has the power to bring him back.
Pakistan, the administration has initiated massive action against the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) activists. About 300 activists have been arrested. The action was initiated in view of preparing for a big rally at the airport on the return of his top leader and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif coming from London.
