Nawaz Sharif says his punishment being dictated

ISLAMABAD:Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said that he is not being punished, but his punishment is being dictated.

Talking to the media after appearing before the accountability court on Wednesday, he said that courts’ remarks against him seem to be coming from his political opponents.

“The review petition decision is a message to the accountability court that Nawaz has to be punished at any cost,” he said.

To a question about PTI chairman Imran Khan’s bail from the anti-terrorism court, Nawaz Sharif said that the courts have double standards. “We are striving against these double standards and will take this struggle to its logical end.”

He said that Imran Khan appeared in court despite being a proclaimed offender and he should have been arrested and produced in court.

The former premier said that his son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar was produced in court after being arrested.

However, he did not respond to the question about dissolving the assemblies.
