Islamabad (July 15, 2017): The chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has hoped that Prime Ministers’ goodby reception will be held next week as government has now dead.
“The long dark night of cruelty is finally going to over,” Imran said while giving interview to a US newspaper.
“Now, there will be criminal proceedings against the prime minister,” Imran said. “The whole family has lied to the court. The whole defence has been a fraud.”
On Monday, when the Supreme Court convenes, it could order the opening of a criminal investigation against the prime minister and his children after they are given a chance to respond to the investigation.
But Imran hopes the judges, after having gone through the JIT report, will immediately remove Sharif under Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution, which calls for the disqualification of any lawmaker found to be dishonest.
However, ruling party leaders and ministers, on the other hand, say they expect a prolonged bitter legal battle.
“There is no precedent of the court using Article 62 and 63,” Zafarullah Khan, the minister of state for law and justice, said in an interview. “If a new history is to be made, I cannot say, but there is not a single precedent.”
Earlier, PML-N leaders claimed that there was no proof of money laundering and tax evasion in JIT report and before demanding PM resignation opponent should read the report.
According to the details, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders said on Saturday that the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) in its final report to the Supreme Court failed to accuse Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of corruption or money laundering even after trying its best.
This was stated by Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division (CADD) Tariq Fazal Chaudhary, while addressing a news conference along with MNA Daniyal Aziz in Islamabad.
