He added that his sources have told him that the recent visit of emir was also connected to this task. He said that I have been told that the process has been completed by up to 80 to 90 pc.
According to his daughter Maryam Nawaz, he has already suffered a stroke thrice. He said that, “the emir Qatar wants to pay the fine to secure his release so that he and his daughter can live in England while Shehbaz and Hamza will stay in Pakistan to run their party affairs.
