(web desk) – Commenting on ongoing corruption cases against Sharif family, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz on Sunday said the whole world knows ‘this is revenge’.
Speaking to journalists before leaving for Pakistan from London’s Heathrow Airport, Maryam said Sharif family will test the judicial system by appearing before courts despite all the reservations
On a question regarding Nawaz Sharif’s re-election as PML-N’s president, she stressed it is party’s democratic right and no one should object to it. She said the things going on in Pakistan for more than one and a half year are in front of everyone now and the government will complete its tenure despite all the hurdles.
To a question, Maryam said her brothers Hassan and Hussain will appear before the court but it is up to them to decide about their return to Pakistan.
It may be mentioned here that an anti-corruption court on Monday issued non-bailable arrest warrants for Nawaz Sharif’s sons and son-in-law, and postponed the indictment of the ousted prime minister on charges of corruption in the Panama Papers scandal.
Maryam, Hussain, Hasan and Capt (r) Safdar have been summoned for the next hearing on October 9, the day when Sharif is also expected to be indicted.
The Supreme Court deposed Sharif in July following an investigation into corruption allegations against him and his family, making him the 15th prime minister in Pakistan’s 70-year history to be ousted before completing a full term.
The allegations were sparked by the Panama Papers leak last year, launching a media frenzy over the lavish lifestyles and high-end London property portfolio of the Sharif dynasty.
