Former chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Monday issued a rebuttal — his second in as many weeks — saying that the voice in a leaked audio clip, purportedly of a conversation between him and an unidentified man regarding PML-N leaders Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz’s trial, was not his.
Speaking to media, Nisar termed the audio clip “fabricated”, adding: “I have never spoken to the person in the audio call.”
In the audio clip, which has not been independently verified, a voice, allegedly of the former chief justice, can be heard saying: “Let me be a little blunt about it.
Unfortunately, here it is the institutions that dictate judgements. In this case, we will have to punish Mian sahab (Nawaz Sharif). [I] have been told ‘we have to bring Khan sahab (Imran Khan) [into power].’”
