LONDON: President Mamnoon Hussain has 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.
The president in a 2016 statement had said that “extraordinary corrupt people have cursed faces” and they will eventually be held accountable for their deeds.
“This Panama leaks issue, it is God-sent, now when it will be investigated, those people who are corrupt and have so far escaped justice will be caught,” the president had said.
