ISLAMABAD – Bushra Bibi, the wife of former Prime Minister Imran Khan, filed a defamation notice against PML-N Chief Organiser Maryam Nawaz on Thursday.
The notification, which included claims made by Ms Nawaz against Ms Bushra, was issued by Advocate Faisal Fareed, and requested an unqualified apology from Ms Nawaz within seven days. “If Ms Nawaz does not retract her statements, she will be prosecuted for defamation under the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC),” the notification added.
The letter went on to say that Ms Bushra was a God-fearing lady, and that Ms Nawaz had been leading a campaign to malign her and her family. “An organised defamation campaign for political purposes could result in Ms Nawaz serving five years in prison,” the warning said.
