Former prime minister and PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi while vouching for the authenticity of the leaked audiotape of former chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has said though it has been established that it is the ex-CJP’s voice but the government was hell-bent to prove that the tape is fake.
He was talking to media after attending a case against him in the accountability court in Karachi on Tuesday. “Institutions should stop running courts and stop taking decisions of their own choice,” he added.
The senior PML-N leader stated that one day, everything would be revealed. In the alleged audiotape, the former CJP was telling somebody that judges received instructions to target PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz.
“Who is instructing whom, everything will come to light,” he added Abbasi maintained that the PML-N had nothing to do with any ‘affidavit’ or ‘audio tape’ we were just demanding justice.
He insisted that the tape was original. He said if the PML-N had created this tape or affidavit to frame the former chief justice of Pakistan, then they should be punished and Ahmad Noorani should be punished for releasing it.
But if the authenticity of the tape proves, then the ex-CJP should be punished, he said adding if the top judge of Gilgit-Baltistan Rana Shamim was lying he should also be punished.
He was of the view that NAB played a pivotal role in the destruction of Pakistan’s economy. He said everybody was aware of the bad state of affairs in the country.
He said inflation was on the rise and it spoke volumes of the failure and inefficiency of the Imran Khan government.
He held that all issues could be settled if all institutions would work while living within their constitutional limits.INP
