LAHORE: Speaking to media outside the accountability court on Friday before his appearance, Nawaz Sharif said he he fully supports JUI-F’s Azadi March.
Nawaz said he appreciated Fazl’s spirit and fully supported him. “We consider Fazl’s position as our own and support it. If Maulana is protesting, then that is fine.”
The PML-N leader further said, “Maulana Fazl had suggested resignation right after the election. He had said suggested we protest, but we had convinced him otherwise at the time. I believe we were wrong at that time.”
During today’s hearing, the accountability watch-dog had requested for Nawaz’s physical remand in sugar mills case.
Upon the appearance of Nawaz in court, the court was asked whether the former prime minister had been shown an arrest warrant at the time of his arrest, to which the investigation officer responded in the affirmative.
