Imran Khan’s supporter paints wall outside Nawaz Sharif’s office in London, writes ‘thief’

London/Islamabad: A supporter of former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan painted the wall of the building where Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Nawaz Sharif’s son Hussain’s office is held here. Under the law in the UK, this amounts to criminal harm. Ali, a British Pakistani supporter of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party (PTI) president Imran Khan, on Monday posted a picture on Twitter in which he can be seen standing in front of the Stanhope House boundary wall.

It was written on this wall with spray paint, ‘You can’t kill Imran Khan thief’. Many people on social media are telling this sentence against the Sharif family. The incident comes days after Khan was shot at a rally in Wazirabad. Khan has repeatedly alleged that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, the younger brother of Nawaz Sharif, was among the three who hatched a conspiracy to assassinate him. Shahbaz has denied Khan’s allegations. Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan (70) was attacked in Punjab province on Thursday during a protest march on his container-truck in which he was shot in the leg.

The convict could be jailed for three months or fined £2,500.
After successful surgery, he has been shifted to a private home in Lahore. According to the Dawn newspaper report, Ali can regularly be seen shouting anti-Nawaz slogans outside Avenfield House and Stanhope House. While some Twitter users praised Ali, others said that the action amounted to criminal damages in the UK. Under Britain’s Criminal Damage Act 1971, anyone caught painting a wall could be punished with imprisonment of up to ten years or a fine of more than £5,000 for damages. If the damage is less than £5,000, the convict could face up to three months in prison or a fine of £2,500.

Offenders can also be prosecuted under the Anti-Social Behavior Act, 2003. However, nothing was disclosed about whether the complaint or charges were filed. Nawaz Sharif, 72, arrived in London in November 2019 in a medical emergency and has been there ever since. He was convicted in the Avenfield property case and sentenced to ten years in prison. His sons Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz live in London. He was declared a ‘fugitive’ by a Pakistani court after he failed to appear in even one of the three corruption cases registered against him with his father.
