LAHORE (92 News) – PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz on Friday requested the judiciary to declare null and void the verdict against her father former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and to release him without any delays after removal of Accountability Court Judge Arshad Malik.

In a series of posts shared on Twitter, Maryam said, “Now this matter is not restricted just to Nawaz Sharif. I am turning to the judiciary for justice. I will keep waiting.”


She called for the verdict against her father former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to be expunged following the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision to remove accountability judge Arshad Malik from his post.

“The matter was not about the removal of a judge instead it was about suspending the verdict that the judge had issued. The matter is about removing the verdict, which this judge had given under pressure, from the court record.”

“Is it enough to only remove the judge? Certainly not,” she wrote.

In another tweet, Maryam said: “The clear meaning of the removal of the judge is that the judiciary has accepted the truth. If this is the case, how can a verdict by this judge being maintained?”

She asked why her father was not being released if the judge, who had given the verdict in the case against him, was removed.

In another post, Maryam asked: “A judge was found guilty of misconduct and was removed from his post; how can the subject of his misconduct be punished?”

“An individual, who had remained the prime minister of Pakistan three times, was behind bars despite being proven to be innocent today,” Maryam tweeted.

Earlier on December, Accountability Court Judge Arshad Malik sentenced former premier Nawaz Sharif in the Al-Azizia while acquitted in Flagship Investment references on Monday.

The court also fined him US$25 million. After the verdict, Nawaz Sharif was arrested.

Announcing the verdict, the judge remarked that Nawaz Sharif had failed in giving the money trail in the Al-Azizia reference. “However, the prosecution failed to prove the allegation in the Flagship reference,” he announced.
