Maryam questions courts’ impartiality as Imran gets bail in four cases

November 15, 2017

ISLAMABAD: Hours after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan was granted bail in four separate cases by an anti-terrorism court (ATC) in Islamabad, Maryam Nawaz said that all judicial requirements were for Nawaz Sharif and his family only as others were not even asked about their whereabouts for the past two years.

The daughter of deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif took to Twitter on Tuesday to vent her anger over court proceedings.

In reaction, Maryam tweeted saying: “[Imran Khan] IK’s case is far more serious in terms of legal implications than Iqama joke (a reference to Panama Papers case). Nation now waiting to see the decision in his case.”

She said all the urgency was for Nawaz’s case as ‘new judicial standards’ were set for issuing the verdict against him. By presenting himself for accountability, the former premier has forced others to follow his examples, she tweeted.

“That’s true. Nawaz Sharif by presenting himself for ruthless accountability knowing it was a farce has forced others to measure up.” INP
