Shehbaz heading home ahead of PML-N’s campaign against ‘double standards of justice’


Punjab chief minister Shehbaz Sharif is expected to return from London on Monday, a day after deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif announced a full-fledged campaign against, what he called, the “double standards of justice.”

The former premier and his daughter Maryam Nawaz arrived in Lahore earlier in the morning. The two had left for London earlier this month to meet the ailing former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz.

On Saturday, Nawaz had said the “double standards of justice were not acceptable,” and went on to add that “we will do everything to uphold the supremacy of the law and the Constitution.”

According to him, while he was disqualified for not receiving a salary from his son, Khan’s hundreds of thousands of pounds had not been deemed an ‘asset’ [by the Supreme Court].

Last week, the top court, while announcing two verdicts on constitutional petitions filed by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi, gave a clean chit to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan but disqualified party’s general secretary Jahangir Tareen.

On July 28, the top court disqualified Nawaz over his failure to declare an unclaimed salary from a Dubai-based company of his son, as an asset when filing his nomination papers in 2013.
