Judges are aware I’m not guilty: Nawaz
From Our Correspondent
ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) will not back down from the movement for the restoration of justice, said Nawaz Sharif while talking to a select gathering of media persons at Punjab House here yesterday.
During the meeting after return from NAB the cases hearing, Nawaz said that National Accountability Bureau team dines out in London with Sheikh Rasheed. The cases against him and his family should be closed because they cannot find any evidence which supports that Nawaz is guilty.
“When will NAB stop its search to find evidence against me?” he asked.
“Now they want to make a case against Shehbaz Sharif. He should be commended on building roads and not being sent references.”
Nawaz said they haven’t accepted the court’s orders over disqualification and that the nation has also rejected this decision. “The judges who gave the verdict want face-saving now. I was certain that they wouldn’t find anything against me. That’s why I did not challenge the court orders,” he added.
The IMF report suggests that Pakistan is 16 points ahead of India and Pakistanis must appreciate that, he said.
Discussing the verdict Nawaz said: “The judges who gave the verdict know that I was not guilty. When they couldn’t find anything they got interim references. I am fighting for the nation and its people. Because of this I am facing a lot of trouble too.”
