Regarding the Lahore High Court order to Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority(PEMRA) to stop airing anti judiciary speeches by Pakistan Muslim League(N) leadership, stalwart the railway minister Saad clarified, that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has only criticized those parts of the Panama case judgement which it thinks are “weak” from a legal point of view, and has not uttered a word against or in disrespect of the judges.

“A court verdict is a public property. That we have filed review petitions against the verdict…means we have disagreements with the judgement. We have and will continue to comment on points which our lawyers thinks are weak from a legal point of view,” Rafique said while talking to media here in Jati Umra.

He reiterated that the party is always cautious even during its criticism of the judgement and has no intention of disrespecting the judiciary or any judges.
