Maryam Nawaz denounces court’s ‘special treatment’ for IK


ISLAMABAD: Following grant of bail to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in four under-trial cases, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz took to twitter to criticise the judicial system that only held ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his family accountable.

“No one asks proclaimed offender (Imran Khan) where was he in last two years,” Maryam tweeted.

In response to a comment made by the chief justice during the disqualification case hearing that the court is in no hurry to give its decision, Maryam retorted, “Yes indeed there is no hurry. The only hurry was for Nawaz Sharif case. Because for judgement against Nawaz Sharif, new rules of justice were laid down”.

In a series of tweets, Maryam stated, “IK’s case is far more serious in terms of legal implications than Iqama joke. Nation now waiting to see the decision in his case.”

She also commented, “Nawaz Sharif by presenting himself for ruthless accountability knowing it was a farce has forced others to measure up.”
