Mr Naseem said the federal government will not allow Maryam Nawaz to leave the country as she is convicted in the corruption cases.
AThe government will move to the Suprme Court, if she [Maryam] was provided relief from the LHC, he said and added that Shehbaz Sharif is in London on the orders of the Lahore High Court.
The law minister said the government is striving hard for corruption-free Pakistan, stern action will be taken against the flour and the sugar mafias.
Defending the decision of taking a bailout package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Farogh Naseem said the economy was in worsening condition, when PTI government came into power. We had to move to the IMF to save the country from being default.
Replying to a question, he said the government is not doing any legislation to control the social media.
