ISLAMABAD       -     Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Accountability Mirza Shahzad Akbar said on Thursday he was still waiting for the defamation suit Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif had threatened him, British newspaper Daily Mail and its reporter David Rose with, after the publication of a story. Responding to a tweet by David Rose, Shehzad Akbar tweeted, “I am waiting too. you promised to drag me in streets of London like you used to say about your new found friend Asif Zardari. It has been months and not taking defamation route simply confirms every bit of this story!” “Where is my legal notice?” Akbar reiterated his stance which he adopted in an article published in a Pakistani newspaper in July that Shehbaz Sharif wouldn’t dare sue him. “This was in July this year and I was right; not even sent me a letter before action!,” he said in another tweet. To his tweet, Secretary General Pakistan Muslim League (N) Attaullah Tarar tweeted, “I would like to enlighten Shahzad Akbar regarding legal notice served to Daily Mail by us. Despite serving legal notice and writing a subsequent letter, reply from Daily Mail is still awaited.” Thus series of tweets ensued with a tweet from David Rose, who in an article published in Daily Mail, had leveled against Shehbaz Sharif serious charges of misappropriation of funds. David wrote, “Hello Pakistani friends.

A lot of you have been asking if Shehbaz Sharif has commenced a lawsuit against me and my newspaper yet. He hasn’t.”

Shehbaz Sharif had vigorously denied the charges and threatened to file a defamation suit in a British court.
