We believe in implementation of law, Nawaz tells party leaders | Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif held a series of meetings with party leaders on Tuesday, following his appearance before the Islamabad accountability court.

Speaking to PML-N members and leaders, Nawaz emphasised he has always believed in the implementation of law and constitutional role of institutions, sources said.

“We have accepted all lawful as well as unlawful developments,” sources cited Nawaz as saying, as he discussed today’s proceedings with the party members.

The powerful do not respect the laws, they fall sick before appearing in courts, the ousted premier said.

Earlier today, Nawaz met Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi at Punjab House.

PML-N MPAs and MNAs also met with the former prime minister, including senior party leader Chaudhry Nisar. 

JUI-F’s Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman met with Nawaz and the two leaders discussed political developments in the country, sources said.

The JUI-F chief also inquired after the health of Kulsoom Nawaz, who is currently under treatment in London.

The accountability court hearing corruption cases against the Sharif family ordered that the former premier Nawaz Sharif will be indicted on October 2.

The court issued bailable arrest warrants for Nawaz’s daughter Maryam, sons Hussain and Hasan, and son-in-law MNA Capt (retd) Safdar, as they failed to appear in court today despite two earlier summons.
