Constitution violator is being welcomed, says Nawaz Sharif
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Former Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that the dictator who violated constitution is being welcomed and the elected prime minister who made Pakistan a nuclear state is being place on exit control list (ECL).
Speaking to informal conversations with the journalists outside the accountability court, “those who broke the backbone of terrorists are being placed on ECL while those who brought terrorism to the country are being removed from the list,” the disqualified prime minister said.
“Those who disrespected the Constitution are being welcomed,” the former premier asserted.Nawaz Sharif said that the court cannot make me to bow due to unending hearings. Nawaz said that the court never took action against those who looted billions of rupees of the nation.
He said that he has attended more than hundred hearings of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) references. “If this is a fair trial, then I have the right to choose my lawyer,” the former premier said.
Earlier, NAB on Monday requested the Ministry of Interior to place Nawaz, daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law Capt (retd) Safdar’s names on the ECL. This was NAB’s second letter on the matter. It also requested the interior ministry to place Hasan and Hussain Nawaz on the ECL. The NAB in a letter on Feb 14 had put forward the same request.
