ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has responded over the verdict against Nawaz Sharif.
PM Khan on Monday said the truth has come out with the verdict.

The court, however, acquitted him in the Flagship reference but imposed a fine of Rs1.5 billion. His sons, Hassan and Hussain, were declared absconders.
Chairing a consultative meeting of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), called in the wake of today’s verdict, PM Imran said the previous rulers only looted the nation’s wealth after coming into power. The truth has come out with the verdict against Nawaz Sharif.
