Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), has accused Imran Khan’s government of being actively engaged in protecting individuals involved in corruption, from Chief Justice Touseef Khan to Al-Qadir Trust. Nawaz Sharif alleges that Justice Omar Ata Bandial is well aware of the corrupt activities of these individuals and their destructive impact on Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif stated during an interview in London that Imran Khan’s government has been caught in embezzlement amounting to billions, extending from Tousheh Khana to Al-Qadir Trust. Despite the serious accusations, Chief Justice Bandial is making efforts to shield these individuals. Nawaz Sharif claims that the Chief Justice’s attempt to offer protection is futile, as the accused individuals are corrupt and have caused immense harm to Pakistan. He criticizes Imran Khan for not taking any significant actions against corruption, even after coming to power, except for protests and demonstrations during his time in opposition.
According to Nawaz Sharif, there was a time when Chief Justice Saqib Nisar, Asif Saeed Khosa, Ajaz ul Ahsan, Sheikh Azmat Saeed, and another judge were determined to undermine his government, willing to go to any lengths to remove him from power. He alleges that these judges were driven by an obsession to discredit him and his administration. Nawaz Sharif emphasizes that these judges did not spare any effort in their campaign against him.
These allegations and statements reflect the ongoing political turmoil and tensions within Pakistan’s landscape. Nawaz Sharif’s accusations against Chief Justice Bandial and the government’s alleged involvement in protecting corrupt individuals shed light on the broader issues of accountability, governance, and the struggle for power. It’s important to note that these statements are part of a complex political discourse and may reflect the perspectives of specific individuals or parties.
