Zardari urges Nawaz Sharif to face cases instead of running away



Former president and Pakistan People’s Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari has said that the cases were trumped up against him but he faced those cases and never ran away from facing the court.

He was called on by Arbab Alamgir and Asma Arbab Alamgir who congratulated him for getting acquitted in the last NAB case.

Talking on the occasion, Zardari further said that despite vengeful victimisation he pursued the legal way, went to the court, and ultimately delivered justice from there.

It may be mentioned here that an accountability court in Rawalpindi acquitted Zardari over in reference pertaining to alleged illegal assets in Pakistan and abroad yesterday.

Khalid Mehmood Ranjha, the judge of Accountability Court had accepted the application seeking the acquittal of former president.

PPP’s Farooq Naek represented the former president in the court.

Earlier this month, the accountability court had reserved judgment on the petition seeking Zardari’s acquittal.

Later, talking to party leaders here in Islamabad, Asif Ali Zardari urged disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif to face cases instead of running away from them. He asked, ‘Why Sharif is evading cases if did nothing wrong’?

Zardari said that the cases against him were filed for ‘political retaliation’. He received justice from the courts. He added that he moved the courts despite being targeted.

The PPP leader stated that they never ran away from the cases against them. During the meeting, PPP leaders congratulated Zardari on being acquitted in the cases against him.
