*LONDON - President Mamnoon Hussain has taken a shot at former PM Nawaz Sharif when he said that corrupt people are arrested as a result of divine law.*
*He called for taking action against corruption and accountability of corrupt people in Pakistan.*
The President Mamnoon who arrived here told a group of Pakistani media persons at the airport that he was in favour of holding accountability of corrupt people in the country.
“It’s the divine law that whenever somebody is involved in corruption, he is sooner or later definitely apprehended after investigation for his crime”, he said.
Pakistan’s High Commissioner to United Kingdom Sahebzada Ahmed Khan was also present at the airport to receive the president.
When asked about the purpose of his visit to the United Kingdom, President Mamnoon Hussain said that he was there on the invitation of the Royal College of Physicians Edinburgh.
He said that there must be accountability of the corrupt people in Pakistan but it should be carried out fairly and across the board.
