Nawaz Sharif's wife Kulsoom Nawaz passes away in London

Kulsoom, 68, wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, breathed her last on Tuesday at a hospital in London after a prolonged illness.

"My sister-in-law and Nawaz Sharif's wife Begum Kulsoom Nawaz is no longer with us", he said.

The announcement of Kulsoom's demise was made on twitter by Nawaz's younger brother Shehbaz Sharif.

But after Sharif was first imprisoned following a military coup in 1999, Kulsoom Nawaz stepped into the limelight, Farouq said.

They are now serving jail terms of 10 and seven years, respectively, at Rawalpindi's Adiala jail, as well as being fined $10.5m and $2.6m each.

Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz had flown to London several times to inquire about the health of Kulsoom Nawaz.

Crucial to the PML-N, she ensured the party remained functional during the most hard of times.

Begum Kulsoom was under treatment at London's Harley Street Clinic since June 2017.

He noted how Davis is also backtracking on a claim that Trump had prior knowledge about the hacking of the DNC email server. Davis told BuzzFeed News Monday night he regretted being the anonymous source as well as his subsequent denial.

The political career of the former first lady remains far from any controversy, unlike embroilment of her family members in different cases.

The information minister said that Kulsoom's sons Hassan and Hussain will be arrested upon their return to Pakistan, however, they will not be arrested if they obtain pre-arrest bails.

Prime Minister Imran Khan sent his condolences on the death of Kulsoom Nawaz and assured the bereaved family of full legal support within the ambit of the law and constitution.

He has directed the Pakistani High Commission in London to assist in provision of all necessary facilities to the heirs of the deceased.

With her husband jailed by General Pervez Musharraf, she broke through a police barricade that had been set up around her home in Lahore in July 2000 in an attempt to prevent her from leading a public rally.

Begum Kulsoom served as first lady of Pakistan in her husband's three non-consecutive terms as prime minister from 1990-1993, 1997-1999 and 2013-2017.

Former Pakistan Cricket Board chairperson Najam Sethi also expressed his grief. "May God bless her soul".
