LAHORE: Qatari Prince Hamad Bin Jassim bin Jaber Al-Thani along with members of the royal family arrived here on Saturday.
Hasan Nawaz, son of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, received the guests at the Lahore airport and took them to the Sharifs’ Jati Umra residence at Raiwind where the premier hosted a luncheon for them.
The arrival of the Qatari prince is being seen in the context of a letter he submitted to the Supreme Court here in the Panama leaks case.
Al-Thani had stated in the letter that his father had longstanding business relations with Mian Mohammad Sharif, the father of PM Sharif, which were coordinated through the prince’s eldest brother.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has left for Turkey to meet the Turkish president.
