Defiant Nawaz Sharif vows to strike back
LONDON – Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that those talking about political asylum must listen that he is returning to Pakistan as he cannot leave the nation alone.
Addressing Workers’ Convention in London on Wednesday, he said that the mission for sanctity of vote won’t stop whether he is jailed or hanged till death.
The PML-N supremo said that he was returning to Pakistan for the sake of nation.
“Those talking about my political asylum and those placing my name in the ECL should listen, I am returning to Pakistan as he promised the people of Pakistan that he would restore sanctity of the vote,” Nawaz said.
I cannot leave the nation in the final mission to restore sanctity of the vote, he added.
Sharif went on to say that the verdict of the accountability court is the second episode of the July 28 judgement of the Supreme Court against them, adding that he was contesting the case to show the real face of justice to people.
“The people of Pakistan have once again seen the real face of justice,” he added.
The former PM said: “I, my daughter and son-in-law were convicted despite no charges of corruption were proved against them, adding that the decision to punish them was taken somewhere else.”
“Those who convicted Maryam Nawaz have disgraced the daughters of entire nation,” he added.
Sharif further said that he was disqualified for not taking imaginary salary from his son.
