Another 62 Pakistanis in Saudi jails arrived in Pakistan on a special flight after their release.
According to the reports, Pakistani’s repatriated thanks to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s involvement and the availability of funding for their homecoming.
“Funds were donated on my orders, and a special flight bringing 62 Pakistani detainees came home from Saudi Arabia to spend Eid with their families,” he said on the social networking site Twitter.
“My administration vows to its people to help Pakistani’s in prisons overseas and to help them return home,” Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In May, Riyadh and Islamabad reached an agreement to return 2,000 Pakistani detainees languishing in Saudi Arabian jails.
On the request of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman visited Islamabad in February 2019 and agreed to release 2,107 inmates.
Later that month, a representative from the Overseas Pakistan Foundation told the National Assembly’s Standing Committee on Overseas Pakistanis and Human Rights that 579 Pakistanis had been pardoned and released in Saudi Arabia.
