ISLAMABAD: A spokesperson for deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif has rejected as speculative a news report published in sections of international and national press that Mr Sharif is negotiating a dealwith the help of Saudi Arabia to avoid accountability.

“Nawaz Sharif has not only abided by the decisions of superior courts but also associated himself with ongoing investigations in politically motivated cases against him,” he added.
Though Mr Sharif believed that he was innocent, he promptly resigned after a decision of the court. Mr Sharif is confident that he would come out clean, the spokesperson emphasised.
“There is no ban on the movement of Nawaz Sharif and, therefore, the question of seeking any permission does not arise. Similarly there is no truth in the rumours of rift within his family,” he said.

Meanwhile, adviser to the prime minister on national history and literary heritage, Irfan Siddiqui, said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president was all set to launch a full-fledged mass-contact drive by next Sunday.
