Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the decision against him was announced after consulting “black law dictionary”.
Speaking to reporters here after appearing before the accountability court, Mr Sharif said that cases are being registered against those who were hurling allegations against others. Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed hid assets worth billions of rupees, he added.
He said that he respected state institutions but it was his and his party’s right to express reservations against any verdict. The former PM stressed that Imran Khan had himself declared Panama verdict as weak decision by Supreme Court.
“Now voices from inside and outside the court are being raised against Panama verdict as yesterday, the respected judge remarked that case was on Panama papers and decision was announced over Iqama (work permit),” he said.
Mr Sharif said: “I am not a person who disrespects institution but there can be discussion over weak verdicts.”
