She said PPP government never forced judges to flee from their chambers whereas the PML-N had a history of always exercising undue influence over the courts. She claimed that PM Imran Khan and the government strengthened the courts, she said and added that the government did not have influence over them.
She said this here today while presenting an audio/video featuring a conversation between the Accountability Judge Arshad Malik (who sentenced her father Nawaz to seven years in jail in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption reference) and a PML-N worker Nasir-Butt at a Presser flanked by Shehbaz Sharif (Leader of the Opposition in NA) and other PML-N heavyweights.
In the secretly filmed video, accountability judge Arshad Malik could be heard stating that there was no proof of corruption against the deposed premier in the 24th December Al-Aziziareference.
Maryam Nawaz has alleged that the judge was shown a video and by means of that blackmailed to write the judgement against her father. According to her transcription of the audio in the video the judge says: “There is no evidence available to constitute that a single penny has been shifted from Pakistan by Nawaz. No evidence could be found regarding any embezzlement of funds in Pakistan or in Saudi Arabia.”
