A leading British law firm Carter-Ruck has posted the Daily Mail's apology to PM Shehbaz Sharif on its website, 24NewsHD TV channel reported on Monday.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif filed a case through the law firm against the UK paper. 

The noted UK paper published an apology to PM Shehabz Sharif over a controversial article in its printed edition yesterday. Earlier the newspaper publishing group Associated Press published an apology online.  

The newspaper published the apology on page 2. The purpose of publishing the apology on page two was that the newspaper reader would read the apology as soon as he opened the newspaper. The newspaper published the controversial news of David Rose almost on the last pages. 

UK editors are bound by a code of practice, it explained, adding that the newspaper is a member of the UK Independent Press Standard Organisation and the error is corrected as soon as it is realized.

“In an article concerning Mr Shahbaz Sharif 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 14 July 2019 we reported on an investigation by Pakistan’s National Accountability Bureau into Mr 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.”
