“PM Shehbaz Intl Sadiq and Ameen,” says Rana Sanaullah following daily mail apology
Following the apology from British publication Daily Mail over corruption allegations, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah declared Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif an ‘international Sadiq and Ameen.’
Taking to twitter, Sanaullah wrote: “Alhamdulillah, another malicious propaganda has been exposed! International Sadiq and Ameen, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.”
Earlier a day, the British publication Daily Mail tendered an apology to Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif while withdrawing allegations of corruption against him and his son-in-law Imran Ali Yousaf.
In an article, Daily Mail journalist David Rose has levelled allegations against Premier Shehbaz about the alleged misappropriation of British public funds.
“We accept Mr Sharif has never been accused by the National Accountability Bureau of any wrongdoing in relation to British public money or DFID grant aid. We are pleased to make this clear and apologise to Mr Sharif for this error,” the clarification read.
In 2019, Daily Mail had published an article alleging that Shehbaz Sharif, as Punjab Chief Minister, had embezzled and laundered British government aid money.
The Daily Mail newspaper alleged that Shehbaz Sharif had misused UK taxpayers’ money, particularly money that was given as aid to the victims of the 2005 earthquake in Pakistan.
Shehbaz Sharif later filed a defamation case against the allegation in January 2020, demanding withdrawal of the allegation, payment of damages and an apology.
In March this year, the newspaper submitted a 50-page response to Shehbaz Sharif’s defamation case.
