LAHORE (92 News) – Reacting to former president Asif Ali Zardari’s arrest, Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz said that the ‘fake prime minister’ would not be able to dodge accountability process by arresting his political rivals.

Maryam Nawaz took her twitter and said that separate laws prevailed for masses and those in power in the country. “Fake prime minister used to say there were separate laws for rich and poor in Pakistan, but the fact is that there is one law for rich and poor and other for the fake PM and his investors,” she remarked.

Maryam further said that the ‘fake premier’ would have been facing courts for allegedly stealing the public mandate and corruption of his sister if the law and accountability process was equal for everyone in the country.

On the other hand, Zardari’s youngest daughter Aseefa Bhutto also lashed out at the government, saying, “This cowardly selected government thinks throwing opposition into jail will legitimise it. No case, no conviction, no plausible cause. Arresting Asif Ali Zardari will not silence the voice of truth. He was vindicated before and he will be vindicated again.”

She also cast doubts over federal ministers’ knowledge of today’s development days and months before the court’s decision. The daughter of former premier Benazir Bhutto also questioned issuance of arrest warrants before cancellation of bail. “Mockery of justice,” she added.
