PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that the judge who sentenced her father, former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has been removed but his judgment was not quashed even after she produced evidence against him.
“In light of the evidence, Mian sahab’s sentence should be struck down,” Maryam said in Lahore on Wednesday. “I request superior courts to do justice.” The case against Nawaz should be declared “null and void”, she said. “A re-trial is unacceptable to me,” the PML-N leader said. “What guarantee is there that those who blackmailed Arshad Malik wouldn’t again blackmail the judge in the re-trial?”
Addressing a press conference in Lahore she alleged that his father was being “held captive in the hands of his enemies who are toying with his life”. The PML-N leader said that in her meeting with her father on Thursday, July 18, the jail doctor brought with him some reports “which he showed great hesitation in presenting”.
She claimed that the reports revealed that his blood sugar had consistently been on the high side and it had been recommended that he be immediately hospitalized “at a medical facility of his choice”. She said that when her father asked why a report which was dated July 3 was being shown to him two weeks later, the doctor had nothing to say.
“Is a three-time Prime Minister deserving of such treatment? Is it not his constitutional and legal right to be informed regarding his health? That he be told that he has been recommended hospitalisation and what threatens his health?”
“He is not getting food from home. I don’t know what they are giving him to eat. “So how I can expect a person like this to guarantee that Mian sahab’s food will be prepared in the jail premises and will be supervised? Who will supervise it and how beneficial it will be for his health, you yourself can assess.”
