Maryam Nawaz Sharif responds over Nawaz Sharif bail rejection decision
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz has responded over the bail petition decision of Nawaz Sharif.
She said on Friday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was not sentenced for committing any crime.
Taking to Twitter hours after the Supreme Court rejected the ailing ex-premier’s plea of permanent bail on medical grounds, Maryam said: “Nawaz Sharif is not facing ‘punishment’ for committing any crime, rather he was punished for becoming people’s voice.”
The PML-N supremo has “rendered immense sacrifices” which Maryam said will bear the “sweetest fruit”. “The fruit of Nawaz’s sacrifices will be for the coming generations of the country.”
Addressing party supporters in the same tweet, she said Nawaz was struggling for them and he will not let them down.
نوازشریف کسی جرم کی سزا نہیں بلکہ عوام کی آواز بننے کی سزا بھگت رہا ہے نوازشریف کی قربانیاں جتنی سخت ہیں انکا پھل بھی اتنا ہی میٹھا ہوگا اور یہ پھل قوم کی آنے والی نسلوں کے لئیے ہے میں ایک بار پھر کہتی ہوں کہ نوازشریف انشاءاللہ آپ کا سر جھکنے نہیں دیگا یہ جدوجہد آپ کے لیئے ہے
The three-time prime minister was sentenced to a seven-year prison term after an accountability court convicted him in Al-Azizia reference. He had been imprisoned at Kot Lakhpat Jail in Lahore since December 24, 2018.
