Serious allegation as treacherous is unimaginable, says Nawaz
LAHORE (92 News) – Refuting treason allegations in high treason case, disqualified prime ministers Nawaz Sharif on Monday has stated that serious allegation as treacherous is unimaginable.
A three-member LHC full bench headed by Justice Mazahar Ali Naqvi and comprising Justice Atir Mahmood and Justice Chaudhry Masood Jahangir heard the treason petition against Abbasi, Nawaz and journalist Cyril Almeida.
Nawaz Sharif and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi refuted treason allegations against them as ‘unimaginable’ and ‘baseless’ in their replies submitted to the Lahore High Court (LHC).
In his reply submitted in court, Nawaz stated that serious allegations as treason is unimaginable. “Can those who make the country supreme be treacherous? Or can those who eliminate terrorism from the country be treacherous,” Nawaz questioned in his reply.
The Pakistani nation is also treacherous and whether the patriotism of the millions who voted me into power is also questionable,” Nawaz said in his reply.
On the other hand, in his reply, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi stated that the allegations against him were false, baseless and based on lies. “I did not speak to Nawaz regarding the National Security Council (NSC) meeting and only discussed party matters with him” Abbasi stated in his reply.
“The news report mentioned in the petition is also factually incorrect,” the former premier mentioned.
