In his article, Rose uncovered Shahbaz Sharif’s embezzlement of money aid given by Britain’s Department for International Development (DFID). The article said that Shehbaz and his family were stealing tens of millions of pounds and laundering it in Britain.
In response to that Shahbaz, sharif denies all the allegations and said ‘Daily mail’ is making up stories.
Shahbaz Sharif further said, “The fabricated and misleading story was published at the behest of Imran Khan and Shahzad Akbar. We will also launch legal proceedings against them,”
“I am utterly applauded by these allegations” Shahbaz sharif.
According to the press release on 25 July “The article is gravely defamatory of Mr. Sharif, including false allegations that he misappropriated UK taxpayers’ money in the form of DFID aid intended for the victims of the devastating 2005 earthquake in Pakistan,”
Furthermore, it was also said in the press release that newspaper ‘Daily Mail’ and author of the article David Rose have been served a legal notice by Shahbaz Sharif.
