Imran Khan opens up another front against PM Nawaz Sharif

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan has opened yet another front against the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

In his application, the PTI chief stated that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Finace Minister Ishaq Dar outlined the strategy to defame judges and members of joint investigation team, adding that this policy was being followed by other members of PML-N “with object to obstruct the administration of justice and hamper, impede and malign the investigation proceedings”.

“It has been noticed with utmost concern that Respondent No 1 [PM Nawaz], by using his position and clout, has started a malafide and malicious campaign against the judiciary and the JIT with criminal intention to hamper and impede the process of the investigating proceedings,” quoted the petition.

“A general impression has been given to the public at large as the ruling family is a prey and victim of an unlawful judicial process and on the pretext profane and irreverence have been continuously attributed to the respected judges of this court for directing further probe of the family through a JIT,” it added.
