LAHORE: Shehbaz Sharif addressing a press conference discussed the aftermath of brother Nawaz and his daughters arrest, he also gave his analysis over the Mastung attack blaming our neighbor India for it.
Former chief minister Punjab and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif said on Saturday that the trial of terrorists is carried out in jails — in a reference to the sentence given to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz in Avenfield properties case.
The PML-N leader said that in 1999 when former military ruler Pervez Musharraf had made a plane hijacking case against Nawaz, even then the trial was not held in jail.
“I have heard Nawaz and Maryam’s trial will be held in Adiala jail, this is tantamount to disgracing sanctity of justice,” said the PML-N president.
The people came out in droves to welcome their leader Nawaz Sharif out on their own accord, adding that the leadership ‘had promised a peaceful rally’.
“Police used tear gas and baton-charged our workers in the rally,” said Shehbaz.
We will exhaust all legal options to safeguard and ultimately release my Quaid and her daughter, said Shehbaz.
“I will soon give a call for peaceful countrywide protests”.
