No Taliban prisoner released: PM Office

ISLAMABAD: The Prime Minister’s Office on Thursday strongly rebutted as “incorrect” the news of an international news agency about the release of Taliban prisoners.

“It is clarified that the release of some prisoners involved in petty crimes by the Political Administration has been wrongly connoted as release of Taliban prisoner,” a statement issued from the PM Office here said.

The statement further clarified that “there has been no authorization given from the Prime Minister in this regard”.
