'SC verdict doesn’t prove corruption allegations against Nawaz Sharif'

Nawaz Sharif will become prime minister for the fourth time: Marriyum Aurangzeb

News Desk July 28, 2017

Minutes after the Supreme Court disqualified Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from holding public office over concealment of assets, former information minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Friday that the verdict doesn't prove any corruption allegations against the PML-N leader.

“Today’s Supreme Court verdict doesn’t prove corruption allegations against Nawaz Sharif,” she told reporters on Friday. “History bears witness that whenever Nawaz Sharif was removed from political scenario, the nation brought him back in Parliament with even more votes."

The time is not far, she added, when Nawaz will become prime minister for the fourth time.

SC disqualifies PM Nawaz in Panamagate case

The PM’s family was named in the Papers, which comprised 11.5 million documents, showing how some of the world’s most powerful people have secreted away their money in offshore holdings.

While two judges had earlier recommended disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in their April 20 judgement, three other judges had recommended the formation of a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the ruling family offshore investments.

In its report, the JIT on July 10 found the family of living beyond means, concealment of facts and being beneficial owners of multiple offshore companies and recommended initiation of reference against the PM and members of the ruling family in the National Accountability Bureau.


Parvez Gondal MD | 6 years ago | Reply She is taking some extremely good and locally-produced illegal drugs which makes her think that the sheriff is honest in spite of the fact that he was kicked out of the his position for being dishonest. He did that or she does not understand the language. Perhaps you needs to get a little bit more education to understand what Supreme Court has said. Nawaz Sharif will become the Prime Minister for the 4th time in her dreams all while she is smoking the drug.
