EU asks Govt to respect Supreme Court verdict in Nawaz Sharif’s case

BRUSSELS:The European Union urged Pakistan to respect the Supreme Court ruling and allow former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to stay in the country. “In our view, the Supreme Court’s view is very clear and should be respected,” said Christiane Hohmann, the European Commission’s external affairs spokeswoman. “If there is any legal case against Mr Sharif, he should have the chance to defend himself in a Pakistan court.” Sharif was deported to Saudi Arabia Monday, just hours after he returned from exile hoping to ignite a popular campaign to oust military ruler President Pervez Musharraf.-SANA
