PM Nawaz gifts ‘horse’ to emir of Qatar
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has sent a ‘horse’ as gift for the emir of Qatar via a special aircraft, ARY News reported.
According to a letter sent to the Qatar, the government of Pakistan sought clearance from the Arab country to allow its special jet C-130 to enter Qatar.
The jet carried along a special horse to be gifted to the emir of Qatar.
The horse was to be sent on January 28, but for some reasons it got delayed.
It’s now finally been sent today (February 1).
In February 2016, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had sent an expensive cow and two buffaloes to emir of Qatar as gift.
Later, one Barrister Javed Iqbal Jeffery filed a petition contending that the prime minister gifted one cow and two buffaloes to the ruler of Qatar and sent them by an airplane. He said the animals were purchased with taxpayers’ money.
He asked the court to recover all expenses incurred on purchasing and sending the animals from the personal accounts of the prime minister.
‘Blessings of Qatar Prince’
Amid the Panama Papers case hearing, a dramatic event unfolded when PM Sharif submitted in the Supreme Court the details of his assets which included a letter by a Qatari prince who provided funds for purchase of controversial properties in London, which are now owned by Mr Sharif’s children. Mr Sharif and his daughter Maryam submitted a 397-page document detailing their assets last year.
The ‘most interesting’ document given to the court is the letter from Qatari prince Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Hamad bin Abdullah bin Jassim bin Muhammed Al Thani, stating that he gave money to the Premier’s family for the purchase of flats in London.
The case is still sub-judice.
