The Accountability court has convicted former Prime Minister, sentencing him for 7 years in prison in Al Aziza case while he has been acquitted in Flagship corruption reference.
Muhammad Arshad Malik, The accountability court Judge, reserved the verdict on December 19th and announced it today, stirring Pakistan’s political landscape once again. The court has also imposed a fine of $25 million in the Al Azizia case. Hassan Nawaz and Hussain Nawaz, Nawaz Sharif’s sons, have been declared absconders in the case as well.
“Punishment to the same man for the fourth time. [This was] blind revenge’s last hiccup but victory is Nawaz Sharif’s, thank God. After two-and-a-half years of revenge-like accountability, after rummaging through three generations, not a penny’s worth of corruption, kickback or commission was found.” – she wrote her her series of tweets.
حکومتیں اپنے کردار اور کارکردگی پر چلتی ہیں،سیاسی مخالفین کو انتقام کا نشانہ بنانے پر نہیں۔ یہ حکومت کی کمزوری کی دلیل ہے۔ حکومتی اہلکار ہر روز یہ سوچ کر دفاتر کا رخ کرتے ہیں نواز شریف کے خلاف آج کیا کرنا ہے۔ نواز شریف انشاءاللہ اور مضبوط ہو گا۔ واپس آئے گا۔ جلد!
