PML-N’s Nasir Butt To Take Legal Action Against Pakistani Channels In The UK
The PML-N’s Nasir Butt, who is at the centre of the controversy surrounding leaked videos of accountability judge Arshad Malik, has warned of legal action that he intends to take against Pakistani media outlets in the UK.
He took to Twitter today, claiming that he had prominent media networks from Pakistan in his sights.
I have started legal action against these Channels in UK 4 allowing PTI govt spokespersons to lie about me:
Shehzad Akbar, Fawad, Firdous lied about me in the UK after I exposed injustice to Nawaz Sharif by the judiciary.

In July of last year, the PML-N leadership held a press conference and alleged that judge Arshad Malik had been blackmailed into ruling against former PM Nawaz Sharif. In support of this claim Maryam Nawaz had played a secretly recorded video that she claimed was of a conversation between Nasir Butt and the judge.
Since then, both the PML-N loyalist and the judge have been subjected to much scrutiny in electronic and social media.
