Imran Khan let off the hook despite confession of guilt, says Nawaz Sharif
ISLAMABAD - Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif expressed that the Supreme Court bench let Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan off the hook despite his confession of assets and offshore firm.
In a brief interaction with newsmen outside the accountability court in Islamabad, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz president reiterated that he was ousted from office merely on the basis of iqama (foreign work permit) drawing a comparison with the clearance meted out to his arch-nemesis Imran Khan by the apex court.
'There are many secrets behind the bail granted to Imran Khan yesterday and I would disclose those' noted the embattled Sharif.
He continued that Imran Khan took benefit of the amnesty scheme which was an endorsement of his wrongdoing adding that the court insisted on absolving him of the charges he himself admitted to.
Sharif decried that an elected premier was disqualified on basis of ‘fictional salary’ and apprised his rivals including Imran Khan that the nation had announced their judgement in NA-120 by-poll, that was won by his cancer-suffering wife Kulsoom Nawaz.
Substantiating his position as an honest leader, the politician observed that any charges of corruption against him were yet to be found by the court.
Saudi Arabia's Visit
To a query regarding his much-hyped tour to Saudi Arabia, the elder Sharif declared that there were long-standing ties between Pakistan and Saudi Arabia dating back to the time of partition.
'My visit to Saudi kingdom was no wonder' said Sharif and hastened to add that those who stirred speculations regarding his visit committed cruelty against the relations between the two brotherly countries.
