VIDEO: Pakistanis released from Saudi prison on PM Imran’s request


A video of Pakistani prisoners being released from a jail in Saudi Arabia is going viral on social media a few days after Saudi Crown Prince concluded his visit to Islamabad.

Scores of inmates can be seen leaving what has been described in the video as a jail in Saudi city Jeddah.


“Everybody is happy leaving for their homes. Kindly pray that brothers who are left behind are also released soon,” a man is heard saying.

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan made a personal request to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to release Pakistani labourers who have been languishing in Saudi jails.

The guest promised to consider the Pakistani leader’s request and only a day latter Pakistan Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said the Saudi government has decided to release over 2,000 Pakistani prisoners.
