LONDON – In another blunt commentary, President Mamnoon Hussain said on Friday that the corrupt elements could escape but only for a few days before they are finally apprehended.
Talking to the media in London where he arrived on a three-day tour, the outspoken president said he stands by his 2016 statement in which he had said that the Panama Leaks were ‘God sent’.
The corrupt can never escape the punishment as it is God’s law, he said in response to this prophecy on Panama Papers.
