That is a big move.
After Imran Khan requested the release of Pakistani prisoners in Saudi Arabia, MBS just officially ordered the release of 2,107 Pakistani prisoners.
In a moving speech upon the arrival of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Imran Khan highlighted and requested the freedom of the thousands of Pakistanis who carry out labour and suffer from ill-treatment and harsh conditions in his Kingdom.
Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman won the hearts of the people of Pakistan when he said “consider me Pakistan's ambassador to Saudi Arabia" in response to my asking him to treat the 2.5 mn Pakistani's working in KSA as his own.#CrownPrinceinPakistan pic.twitter.com/Xr0E2EWKrK

In 2018, these workers made the second largest migrant community in the Kingdom and in 2016, their remittances amounted up to almost six billion dollars.
Most of these people went to Saudi to earn a living and support their families, however, the punishment for overstaying a visa leads to immediate imprisonment, which is why thousands of our people have virtually been trapped in their prisons, away from their families and homes.
The fact that Imran even brought it up could have been a tricky turn of events in the so far peaceful visit of the Prince. Instead, it proved to be a huge success.
After Imran’s request, MBS ordered the release of thousands of prisoners in Saudi Arabia, with remaining cases to be reviewed.
