ISLAMABAD: Advisor to Prime Minister on Political Affairs Dr Asif Kirmani Thursday said the people's favorite leader Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif once again succeeded in the court of people and law.
Addressing a public gathering here, Asif Kirmani said the honorable apex court issued a historical verdict on Panama Papers in favor of Nawaz Sharif by rejecting all false allegations against him.
He asked the activists of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) from Khyber to Karachi to thank Allah Almighty as their leader was once again proved to be 'Sadiq and Amin.'
He said when the opponents started making accusations on Panama Papers, Nawaz Sharif himself wrote a letter to the Supreme Court for investigating into the matter by forming a Joint Commission. However, he said the master of U-Turn, PTI Chief Imran Khan, who was earlier in favour of forming a Judicial Commission took another U-Turn and declined to accept the Commission on this matter.
The Advisor said the PM presented himself and his whole family for accountability.
"The PM faced this case like an ordinary citizen and offered to get the financial matters of his family's three generations investigated," Kirmani added.
He said Nawaz Sharif did not avail any exemption whereas Pakistan People's Party's Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari always took the advantage of National Reconciliation Order (NRO) and the exemption to escape from corruption charges.
