PPP leaders slam Nawaz’s conviction, JIT report


SUKKUR: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Syed Khursheed Shah and on Wednesday said that Nawaz Sharif’s conviction by the accountability court confirmed that there is a nexus between the government and the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

The former opposition leader in the National Assembly (NA) said that Nawaz’s conviction was expected because of the existence of a nexus between the government and NAB. The ministers had also been mentioning his probable conviction in the corruption references, he added.

Meanwhile, PPP Punjab Secretary Information Qamar Zaman Kaira, while speaking to journalists at Sukkur Airport, said that the joint investigation team’s (JIT) report in the money laundering case was a one-sided story and the accused should be given the chance to defend themselves because previously false allegations had been levelled against the party leaders.

He underlined that people are being held accountable to force them to switch loyalties or to stifle their voice. “Whoever surrenders is being forgiven and whosoever does not surrender then cases are registered against him,” he said.
