ISLAMABAD: Maryam Nawaz Sharif on Monday stated that PTI chief Imran Khan was a ‘permanent employee’ of coup-makers which was obvious from his statements.

In a hard-hitting tweet, the daughter of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif stated that Imran’s ‘words are not his own’.

In a series of tweets, Maryam slammed Imran and said that all principles of justice applied to Nawaz Sharif and his family whereas an absconder was not being taken to task as to why he evaded the courts since the past two years.

The PML-N leader further said that Imran Khan’s case was far more serious than Nawaz Sharif’s Iqama ‘joke’.

‘Nation now waiting to see the decision in his case,’ she tweeted.

The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday reserved its verdict regarding the Imran Khan and Jahangir Tareen disqualification cases.

The counsel for Imran Khan Naeem Bukhari concluded arguments before the bench.

Bukhari said that an amount worth 20,000 pounds was deposited in Imran Khan’s account through NSL account in July 2007.

He asserted, “My client might have made mistakes in his assets declaration form for 2002 elections, but, it was not based on dishonesty.”

Bukhari said the petitioner Haneef Abbasi sought Imran Khan’s disqualification based on the documents submitted in 2002.

“Why did the then returning officer not scrutinize the papers?” the CJP said raising the question if the bench can investigate those documents or not.

The Chief Justice observed that Imran Khan declared his London flat but not the offshore company.

Imran’s counsel responded that his client was not the beneficial owner of the company nor its shareholder; that is why it was not declared.
