Britain will never return Nawaz, it runs on fugitive money: Aitzaz Ahsan

Aitzaz Ahsan has said that the PTI government should not try to bring Nawaz Sharif back from Britain because it is impossible

Aitzaz Ahsan in an interview with ‘Public TV News’ Wednesday said that “(The Government), I have said from the start, should not even try. It is impossible to bring him back from Britain.”

“Britain runs on fugitive money. Around 550 Indian fugitive billionaires are sitting in Britain, they just want you to come with your money. So, to bring Nawaz Sharif, three times prime minister, and if he (Nawaz) says that he will be killed if he was sent back to Pakistan, it is impossible,” he explained.

Aitzaz Ahsan continued that the government should not try, since they will inevitably fail and that failure will stick with their record.

This not being the first time the PPP leader has predicted that Nawaz Sharif will not return to the country, back in March he said that the UK had never returned any political leader to date. He was of the view that the PML-N leader had not been ailing at all.

“Since Nawaz Sharif went to London, he has not been admitted to hospital for a single day,” Ahsan said. “Asif Ali Zardari is sicker than Nawaz Sharif.”

Aitzaz Ahsan thinks Nawaz is a proclaimed offender

Aitzaz Ahsan, a senior leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and a prominent lawyer, on September 2 had said that former premier Nawaz Sharif was a proclaimed offender as he had violated the court orders regarding his bail conditions.

Ahsan further claimed that Sharif had taken advantage of ‘forum shopping’ in cases against him, using different courts to win relaxations and relief through a coordinated effort. Sharif had, last year, managed to get bail from IHC instead of the LHC to travel abroad.

Ahsan had also said that Nawaz Sharif had taken unfair advantage, and used different courts to win relaxations through a deliberate and coordinated effort.
