Nawaz Sharif vows to take 'murder of justice' to logical conclusion
In a brief interaction with newsmen on Tuesday outside the accountability court in Islamabad, the former lawmaker expressed that a sitting prime minister was ousted without giving him a benefit of doubt.
"A joke is being played with the people of Pakistan. The nation cannot tolerate this joke anymore," he observed.
Comparing his disqualification with that of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan’s clean chit given by the top court, the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz president declared that the duality of justice was evident.
“Imaginary income was portrayed as my asset, whereas he [Imran Khan] has himself admitted his assets, yet it was declared he doesn’t own those assets,” he explained.

ISLAMABAD - An accountability court on Tuesday resumed hearing of three corruption references against members of Sharif ...
Urging the need for across the board justice, the former premier maintained that he would make efforts so justice is dispensed to everyone.
“Politicians require votes from the nation not clean chit from courts.” he added.
Earlier, the former legislator, flanked by his daughter Maryam Nawaz, appeared before the court handling the references filed by the National Accountability Bureau in line with the Panama papers case verdict.
This was Sharif’s 10th appearance before the court, which has been conducting proceedings of three references filed against the Sharif family.
The references against the Sharif family include Al-Azizia Steel Mills, offshore companies including Flagship Investment Ltd, and Avenfield properties allegedly owned by the Sharifs.
The former premier is accused in all three references — Al Azizia, Avenfield and Flagship Investment but his daughter Maryam and son-in-law Captain Safdar are accused in Avenfield (London flats) reference only.
