Former PM Nawaz Sharif to be extradited from UK

ISLAMABAD: After former prime minister Nawaz Sharif delivered a fiery speech link against the government at the opposition’s multiparty conference via a video link from London on Sunday, the government is considering asking the British government to hand over the PML-N supreme leader to Pakistan in an exchange for some wanted persons, according to a cabinet member.

Speaking to reporters after attending the hearing of a case link related to enforced disappearances in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Interior Mirza Shahzad Akbar said the government had constituted a high-level committee to resolve the issue of missing persons.

He said the committee would examine effectiveness of the Commission of Inquiry on Enforced Disappearances headed by retired Justice Javed Iqbal, who is also chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).
