‘Meeting likely as Zardari checks into hotel close to Sharif’s flat’
Sources said that if the meeting took place then PM Nawaz Sharif along with his son may visit Asif Ali Zardari in his hotel suite at night. The purpose of meeting at night was reportedly to keep it secret.
The hotel Zardari checked into is located at a distance of only 500 yards from PM Sharif’s flat in London. Meetings have also been held at the same hotel in past.
Adviser to CM Sindh on Information, Maula Bux Chandio, when asked, commented that ‘the patient does come to the doctor and that he may also get an emergency appointment’.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family are under fire at home after Panama Papers leaks that prompted corruption allegations against them.
He departed to London to have his ‘medical check-up’, but political circles are abuzz that the Pakistan premier actually intended to meet Asif Ali Zardari to seek advice from him as to how to end the crisis surfacing after the Panama Papers leaks.
The leaked Panama Papers, comprising 11.5 million documents from Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca, exposes how some of the world’s most powerful people have secreted their money offshore, and also implicated Sharif’s sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz.
