PPP not supporting Sharjeel Memon: CM
Published in Current Affairs on Sunday, March 19, 2017
KARACHI: Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has dismissed the notion that Pakistan Peoples Party is supporting its former provincial minister Sharjeel Memon.
Memon arrived in Pakistan from Dubai late on Saturday, ending his self-exile. He was detained by NAB and FIA authorities as he landed at the Islamabad airport; however, Memon was later released.
His lawyer says that the ex-minister, who is facing several cases of corruption, would surrender before Islamabad High Court on Monday.
“If we had to support and protect Sharjeel, we would have landed him at Karachi airport,” the CM said speaking to reporters in Khairpur city.
“Our party believes in supremacy of the law… whether he is involved in corruption or not, it will be decided by courts,” he said while replying to a question about Memon. - Samaa
