Addressing a massive gathering of supporters at Mansehra on Friday, she asked if there any clause in the Constitution of Pakistan for calling names to elected representatives. “If the chief justice is going to use the language similar to Imran Khan then he will have the same answer like we use to give to our political opponents,” she warned. Maryam Nawaz said insulting an elected prime minister is equal to insulting the people.

We will live and die here,” she said. and informed that he will appear before the court. Justice Aijaz-ul-Ahsan asked AD Khawaja if Rao Anwar is in Islamabad.

Saudi troop deployment: Senate summons defence minister ISLAMABAD: Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani has summoned Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir to appear before the Upper House of Parliament on Monday with regards to the army’s announcement of sending troops to Saudi Arabia.

The ISPR said that the military contingent is part of the ongoing Pakistan- Saudi bilateral cooperation, under which a number of Pakistani troops are already stationed in Saudi Arabia for advisory roles. ISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was the true owner of all his assets, despite them being in his children's names. This has been stated in the supplementary references filed by NAB in the Al Azizia and Flagship references. It is stated in the supplementary reference that Nawaz is the primary accused in the cases. Moreover, it states that NAB conducted an investigation against US, UK move to put Pakistan on terror funding watch list Pakistan could face economic pain from return to terrorist financing 'grey list' WASHINGTON: The United States along with the United Kingdom has put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watch list with an anti-money-laundering monitoring group, according to a senior Pakistani official. Pakistan has been scrambling in recent months to avert being added to a list of countries deemed non-compliant with terrorist financing regulations by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), a measure that officials fear could hurt its economy. The US and the UK have reported to the FATF that Pakistan hasn’t complied with terrorism regulations, Rana Muhammad Afzal Khan, a junior Pakistani minister for finance and economic affairs, told Bloomberg by phone on Wednesday. Khan said the body’s review is scheduled for early next week and that the charges were a ”conspiracy”. Pakistan gave a comprehensive reply to the allegations on 5 February, ”but now they are adding some more items,” he said. Pakistan’s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, told Reuters that the United States and Britain put forward the motion several weeks ago, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it. The United States has been threatening to get tough with Islamabad over its alleged ties with Islamist militants, and last month President Donald Trump’s administration suspended aid worth about $2 billion. Islamabad, which denies assisting militants in Afghanistan and India, has reacted angrily to US threats of further punitive measures. A meeting of FATF member states is due to take place next week in Paris, where the organization could adopt the motion on Pakistan. The FATF, an intergovernmental body based in Paris, sets global standards for fighting illicit finance. ”We are now working with the US, UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn,” Ismail told Reuters by telephone from Europe. ”We are also quite hopeful that even if the US did not withdraw the nomination that we will prevail and not be put on the watchlist.” Pakistan had been on the FATF watchlist from 2012 to 2015. The FATF had previously warned Islamabad it could be put back on the watchlist without further efforts to crack down on the flow of funds to militants. Pakistani officials and Western diplomats say that being put on the FATF watch list could deal a blow to Pakistan’s economy as it would make it harder for foreign investors and companies to do business in the nuclear-armed South Asian nation. Nawaz owner of assets in children's names: NAB Farooq Sattar backs down Sattar allows Bahadurbad wing to nominate four candidates for Senate elections KARACHI: Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) ousted convenor Farooq Sattar on Friday extended an olive branch in a attempt to heal the internal party rift, and conceded to allow the Bahadurabad wing to nominate four candidates for the upcoming Senate elections. Addressing media ahead of the general workers session, Farooq Sattar was adamant that he was the legitimate leader of the MQM and had been accepted as convenor by the election commission. “MQM-Pakistan is registered with my name, the kite is our election symbol.” He urged party workers not be misled by rumour-mongering Bahadurabad wing. “You (Bahadurabad wing) are deliberately holding an illegal party session. Workers should not fall for the misleading propaganda of the defunct Rabita committee.” He also called all those at the Bahadurabad wing to join him, saying that a party is not known by the officer bearers but rather than its activists. “I rescued the MQM after the August 23 incident, the kite is still the symbol of the PIB,” he said adding those who will win the intra-party election on Sunday will be the legitimate office-bearers of the party. He said that he had agreed to visit the Bahadurabad faction on the precondition that they should call off the consultative session held there. KARACHI: Supporters of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM-P Bahadurabad Group) present during public gathering meeting held at Gulshan-e-Iqbal area. Nawaz’s assets and even went to London in this regard. The supplementary references add that Nawaz failed to prove his innocence and when asked to appear before the bureau, he chose not to. Referring to the Panama case Joint Investigation Team (JIT), the supplementary reference mentions that the JIT report has enough evidence to take the proceedings further. On Wednesday, NAB filed supplementary references in the Al- Azizia and Flagship references in the accountability court hearing corruption cases against Nawaz and his family. Nawaz, sons Hasan and Hussain are accused in the two references. Sources informed that eight new witnesses in each reference, as well as new evidence, including details of offshore companies of Hasan and Hussain, are part of the supplementary references. On Saturday, Nawaz did not appear before the NAB Rawalpindi to record his statement with regards to the two references after having been summoned at the regional office. SC takes notice of Sharjeel's shifting from jail to hospital ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar took notice on Friday of the shifting of former Sindh information minister Sharjeel Memon from a jail to a hospital.
