Nawaz Sharif has announced full support for the march in the media while talking to the media today at the Accountability Court of the Punjab provincial capital Lahore.
He said, “Whatever tactics you use, do not bow down first or bow down now.” Nawaz Sharif made it clear that Shahbaz Sharif has been informed in writing to attend the march.
It may be recalled that the court has granted former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif custody of the NAB on a 14-day physical remand for investigating money laundering charges through Chaudhry Sugar Mills.
On Friday morning, the NAB arrested Nawaz Sharif from Kot Lakhpat jail on money laundering and presented him in Lahore’s accountability court.
On the request of NAB’s lawyer Hafiz Asadullah, Judge Amir Mohammad Khan handed over Nawaz Sharif’s 14-day physical remand to Nawaz Sharif for investigating money laundering charges through Chaudhry Sugar Mills.
After receiving physical remand, Nawaz Sharif was shifted to NAB Lahore office.
It is to be noted that during the proceedings on the money laundering charges against Maryam Nawaz, NAB’s lawyer Hafiz Asadullah Awan informed the court that he was required to investigate Nawaz Sharif in this matter.
For the first time, Nawaz has been detained for investigation by Nawaz Sharif after he was removed from his ministry.
The arrivals to the Judicial Complex were closed on Friday morning through containers.
The PML-N leader arrived at the judicial complex early in the morning due to Nawaz Sharif’s hearing. The first to come included Asif Kurmani and Maryam Aurangzeb, and the series continued until Nawaz Sharif’s arrival.
Rush in the room court caused the temperature to rise, which led to the imprisonment and Nawaz Sharif having difficulty reaching the roster.
On arrival at the courtroom, activists shouted slogans like “Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif”, “Sher Sher” and “Honor the vote”.
During the hearing, Nawaz Sharif stood on the roster with his lawyer for about an hour and a half.
Nawaz Sharif claimed that he did not do a single corruption and if he proved corruption, he would quit politics.
The former prime minister complained that he had asked to meet his lawyer before meeting the NAB in jail, but had not been called.
During the hearing, Nawaz Sharif continued to instruct his lawyer Amjad Pervez Malik on a piece of paper.
Maryam Nawaz and his cousin Yousuf Abbas are already in NAB custody on money laundering charges. Nawaz Sharif was presented in the accountability court where Maryam Nawaz was presented.
According to Nawaz Sharif, former military president-General Pervez Musharraf had made him the NAB to target. The former Prime Minister expressed regret that the NAB is being used against the PML-N and the opposition.
According to Nawaz Sharif, the allegations leveled against him are baseless. When nothing happens, everyone comes to their family business.
Nawaz Sharif is the fourth member of his family to appear before the Accountability Court at the Judicial Complex in Lahore. Earlier, his brother Shahbaz Sharif, daughter Maryam Nawaz, two nephews Hamza Shahbaz and Yousuf Abbas were presented for physical remand.
Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer Amjad Pervez Malik dismissed the request for physical remand. He pointed out that in the past, JIT had conducted detailed investigations on Nawaz Sharif, but he had also raised no objection to Chaudhry Sugar Mills.
Captain Retired Safdar stayed with his father-in-law Nawaz Sharif at the Judicial Complex. Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law continued to instruct the mourners to remain silent with a gesture of hand.
The Judicial Complex building is located in the same constituency of the National Assembly from which Nawaz Sharif was elected in 2013 and then Begum Kalsum Nawaz was also elected after his disqualification on the court decision.
To see Nawaz Sharif, the leaders and members of the PML-N stood at the assembly table from which a table was broken and the door to the court was also partially damaged.
The PML-N senior leaders Pervaiz Rashid, Mohammad Zubair, Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, Mohsin Ranjha, Ahsan Iqbal, Amir Khan and Talal Chaudhry were present in the House, while Nawaz Sharif was supported by Nawaz Sharif’s lawyer. Bhatta Rafaqat Dogar, Rana Asadullah Khan, Shabnam Gowariya, Raja Khurram and Sharif Zoya were present.
During the hearing, a lawyer, also unconscious, was given medical help by rescue personnel.
It should be recalled that in the earlier three verdicts against Nawaz Sharif, two of them were convicted in the Avon Field and Al-Azizia reference and were acquitted in the Flag Night reference.
