Nawaz’s Adiala trial was a one-off measure, says the caretaker information minister

Interim Information Minister Ali Zafar held a press briefing after the cabinet meeting in Islamabad on Wednesday.

He discussed the decision to hold former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s trial at Adiala Jail instead of at an accountability court. “It was a one-off measure for the day he returned to Pakistan,” explained Zafar, adding that they have reversed their decision now.

According to Article 10A of the Constitution, everyone deserves a fair trial and justice, he said.

We will hold his trial in a regular accountability court and, if needed due to security threats, we can shift the location, he said.

Problems emerged after FATA’s merger, he said, adding that the same laws will be followed in FATA that are followed throughout the country.

He discussed the law and order situation in the country and said stakeholders should be taken on board when making security decisions.

“We don’t want to stop anyone from holding rallies or corner meetings before the elections but these events need to be held according to our rules and procedures,” Zafar explained.

He also mentioned that some policy decisions need to be made in accordance to the FATF’s guidelines. They told us that we must change our policies and gave us a timeframe in which to do so, explained the caretaker information minister, adding that the caretaker government will identify where these decisions can be implemented in order to smooth the way for the incoming government.
