Prime Minister Imran Khan has reportedly directed his government’s spokespersons to underscore how the Pakistan Muslim League – N (PML-N) maligned the judiciary and roughed up judges in the past.
Reports suggest that the premier’s directives came in light of former Gilgit-Baltistan chief judge’s allegation that former chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar had asked a high court judge to keep former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz in jail till the 2018 general elections. Saqib Nisar has rubbished the accusation.
Addressing a meeting of party spokespersons, the prime minister said that the PMLN is a mafia which pressurizes judges to take decisions in their favor, adding that it will no longer be allowed to use such tactics.
Mr Khan vowed that the government respects the institutions and will stand by them, saying that the “mafia had attacked” judges in the past.
