Verdict against Nawaz ‘last hiccup of blind revenge’, says Maryam


Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s daughter and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Maryam Nawaz on Monday tweeted that the accountability court’s verdict in the Al-Azizia reference is the “last hiccup of blind revenge”.

Taking to Twitter shortly after the accountability court sentenced Nawaz to seven years in prison in Al-Azizia reference and acquitted him in the Flagship reference, Maryam said, “One man has been sentenced for the fourth time. This is the last hiccup of blind revenge.”

But success is of Nawaz Sharif, all praises to the Almighty. After a long accountability process spanning 2.5 years and three generations being probed, not a single penny’s worth corruption, kickbacks or corruption was proven. Even malpractice in the national exchequer could not be detected, she added.

“All the decisions were based on his [Nawaz] late father’s personal businesses. When they could not find anything wrong with them either, then sentences were handed based on assumptions. Today’s verdict is a testimony of Nawaz Sharif’s honesty and integrity,” Maryam stated.

In a third tweet, Maryam said, “These verdicts will finish but Nawaz Sharif’s honesty and opponents’ burden of tyrannies will remain because government, power and privileges are there to end. It does not take long for tides to turn and times to change. Remember, when brutalities cross limits, they end.”

A day earlier, Maryam returned to social media after a five-month hiatus and posted an emotional tweet about her parents.

Earlier today, Nawaz was sentenced to seven years in prison in Al-Azizia Steel Mills corruption reference and he was acquitted in the Flagship Investment reference.
