This is not the first time Nawaz Sharif is being punished: Maryam Nawaz
14 April, 2018
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz Friday said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s disqualification would last until those delivering verdicts are in office.
“This is not the first time Nawaz Sharif is being punished … his opponents have been trying to oust him for last 35 years,” Maryam told a charged crowd at party’s social media convention here.
The former first daughter said Wajid Zia, who was the head of Panama JIT which probed the offshore assets of ruling family, had himself told the court that he had no evidence against Nawaz Sharif. “The head of ‘Whatsapp JIT’ had himself testified for Nawaz Sharif’s innocence,” she said. “Wajid Zia said that 40 people were carrying out investigation against Nawaz. Who were they?” she asked.
Sharif’s daughter said his father has been disqualified for four times in the same case because ‘they’ know that Nawaz Sharif can’t be defeated. “The verdicts remind us of Musharraf’s era when Nawaz Sharif was convicted in a plane-hijacking case because the military dictator failed to prove corruption charges against him,” she said. “Musharraf used to say Nawaz would not return, where is Musharraf himself today?” she asked.
