ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Federal Minster for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday has disclosed that talks being held with the UK authorities for the extradition of ex premier Nawaz Sharif adding that said that the Government of Pakistan (GOP) will bring former prime minister Nawaz Sharif back from the UK as the “accused will not return by himself”.
While talking to a press conference in Islamabad today, Fawad Chaudhry said that previously PDM Chief Fazlur Rehman had also announced to hold mass rallies against government but all ended in vain.
While referring to Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Fawad asked, “Maulana Fazlur Rehman had also announced a march, but what happened?”
“Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari have harmed the country and because of that the incumbent government had to approach the IMF. The Sicilian Mafia was exposed in the Rana Shamim case,” he further added.
Meanwhile, Fawad Chaudhry said that the federal cabinet had approved forming a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to investigate the murder of Nazim Jokhio.
He added that extensive efforts were made to compromise Jokhio’s murder probe. Hence, the federal cabinet has decided to formulate a JIT comprising the officials from police, intelligence agencies, civil and armed forces.
It is pertinent to mention here that Jokhio was allegedly tortured to death by PPP MPA Jam Awais in Malir s Memon Goth for preventing the MPA s foreign guests from hunting the protected Houbara Bustard by posting their videos on social media.
Moreover, Fawad also apprised the media regarding the cabinet meeting, which approved the country’s first National Security Policy a day ago.
“The national security policy is linked to the life of the common man and it will ensure the safety of the common man. The national security policy also concerns the economic situation,” he added.
