IB chief must resign immediately for meeting Nawaz in London, says Imran

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, criticised the Intelligence Bureau’s (IB) chief Aftab Sultan for meeting former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in London, saying that the chief must resign immediately for visiting a disqualified PM at taxpayers’ expense.

The PTI chairman took to Twitter on Tuesday and said that the Bureau chief had no business meeting a disqualified PM at taxpayers’ expense.

He went on to say that since the IB head is an official of the State, his duty lies with the State and not with the Sharif family.

Taking an exception to the IB’s alleged role in politics, the PTI chief accused the civilian intelligence service of abetting Nawaz Sharif “by creating grounds for blackmailing his MNAs into falling in line.”

“This is how state institutions are destroyed by a mafia breaking all laws and democratic norms,” he said in a tweet.

The PTI chairman also criticised the official protocol given to the former prime minister in connection with Nawaz Sharif’s appearance before the Islamabad Accountability Burea, which is hearing corruption cases against the Sharifs.

“The official protocol given to a disgraced, disqualified PM, also accused of tax evasion, forgery, money laundering etc, is shameful,” he said.

He also said that this sends the wrong message to the society that the powerful can break laws with impunity. “Clearly this is mafia rule, not the democracy,” he added.

Imran Khan in an interview also said the ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif has no future in the country’s politics. He also vowed that he would not pardon any corrupt figures if the public voted him to power in the 2018 elections.

Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif appeared before the accountability court here on Tuesday. The accountability court on Tuesday, also announced that Nawaz Sharif will be indicted on October 2.

In addition, the court has also ordered the issuance of bailable warrants of Nawaz’s children, Hasan, Hussain, and Maryam as well as his son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar to ensure their appearance at the next court hearing scheduled on October 2. Each of the four accused will also have to submit bonds worth Rs1 million each.

Nawaz returned to Pakistan on Monday after spending over three weeks in London.
