ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that documents were brought in from Qatar to save the rulers from accountability.
Talking to media outside Supreme Court after the hearing of Panama Leaks case, Sheikh Rashid said that due to Panama Leaks, attacks were carried on Line of Control and Shah Noorani shrine.
He claimed that the government had completely stuck in what he said Panama’s mud and had sought help from Qatar to come out of it. He said that today documents brought from Qatar were presented in the Supreme Court. “It seems tomorrow these people will bring papers of Mahatma Gandhi and Modi to rescue themselves,” he remarked sarcastically.
He accused the government of tempering with the documents, adding that the entire government machinery was being used for the purpose.
He said that the whole national was looking towards Supreme Court and they wanted a decision on the case.
Earlier, during the hearing of the case the packed court room No 1 burst into laughter when Sheikh Rashid said that the government was tempering with the document and today it presented documents brought from Qatar. “Tomorrow these people would bring papers of Gandhi and Modi and will claim that they had business in Amritsar,” Sheikh said and remarked:” Liars are always liars” to which Justice Asif Saeed Khosa asked him as to which liars he was talking about. The one who is advocate or those used to tell lie? Chief Justice while addressing Sheikh Rashid said: “You would have been a successful lawyer had you been opted legal profession instead of politics.”
Sheikh Rashid said that his focus was Article 62 and 63 of the constitution.
