Criticising Nawaz Sharif s statement regarding the judiciary, Fawad Chaudhry said that the nation won t allow a convict to dictate the Supreme Court (SC).
“A convict won t be allowed to dictate the judiciary regarding the constitution of benches and hearings of cases. He should remember that his brother Shehbaz Sharif s government was also established after a suo motu notice.”
He advised Nawaz Sharif to come out of memories of the 1997 era and give sensible statements after ascertaining the facts. He added that the Panama revelations were made by a journalist consortium which led to the penalties pronounced on the corrupt rulers.
