British newspaper Daily Mail has apologised to Prime Minister for levelling corruption charges in an article.

According to media reports, Daily Mail has apologised to PM Shahbaz Sharif withdrawing each and every allegation of corruption against him and his son-in-law Imran Ali Yousaf.

Article by David Rose removed from all platforms of Mail publishers.

It should be noted that Daily Mail failed to prove the allegations levelled by its journalist David Rose in an article against Premier Shehbaz about the alleged misappropriation of public funds.

The Mail Online, in its clarification statement, mentioned that their article concerning PM Shehbaz entitled ‘Did the family of Pakistani politician who has become the poster boy for British overseas aid STEAL funds meant for earthquake victims’ published on July 14, 2019 was reported on an investigation by Pakistan’s National Accountability Bureau into Sharif and suggested that the money under “investigation included a not insubstantial sum of British public money that had been paid to the Punjab province in DFID grant aid”.

“We accept Mr Sharif has never been accused by the National Accountability Bureau of any wrongdoing in relation to British public money or DFID grant aid. We are pleased to make this clear and apologise to Mr Sharif for this error,” the clarification read.
