Nawaz Sharif responds back hard over treason allegations

LAHORE – Disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday has responded over the treason allegations.

He has stated that serious allegation as treacherous is unimaginable.

A three-member LHC full bench headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi and comprising Justice Atir Mahmood and Justice Chaudhry Masood Jahangir heard the treason petition against Abbasi, Nawaz and journalist Cyril Almeida.

Nawaz Sharif and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi refuted treason allegations against them as ‘unimaginable’ and ‘baseless’ in their replies submitted to the Lahore High Court (LHC).

In his reply submitted in court, Nawaz stated that serious allegations as treason is unimaginable. “Can those who make the country supreme be treacherous? Or can those who eliminate terrorism from the country be treacherous,” Nawaz questioned in his reply.
