Nawaz Sharif’s lawyers draw court’s attention to Fawad Chaudhry’s interview
ISLAMABAD: Nawaz Sharif’s lawyers have requested a court hearing the Flagship reference to take notice of Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry’s TV interview in which was said former prime minister would be convicted and sent to jail again.
Zubair Khalid, counsel for Sharif, said that the minister’s remarks were damaging to the court’s credibility.
The judge asked Sharif’s counsel whether the minister was making a general statement or was he referring to court. The judge said that even murder suspects think they would be acquitted but the case was decided by the court on merit.
He directed the lawyers of former prime minister to file an application against the minister so that the court could review it.
Sharif’s lawyer Khawaja Haris asked the court to seek transcript of the minister’s statement.
Fawad Chaudhry while talking on Hamid Mir’s Capital Talk show claimed that Nawaz Sharif would once again go to jail.
In a Twitter statement again, the minister said that more than 50 opposition members would go to jail.
