ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan on Monday said that the government took the history’s biggest ‘U-turn’ in the Supreme Court.
Talking to media after the hearing of Panamagate case in Supreme Court, Imran Khan said that the government played a bluff which backfired.
He added that the Prime Minister had declared in the Parlaiment that he was ready for accountability and would not seek any immunity, however today his counsel argued the “Prime Minister has immunity for telling lies and they have no documents”.
He said that today during Prime Minister’s counsel arguments, half of the people in attendance in SC were sleeping. He added that the whole nation was eagerly waiting for the government to present the money trail.
The PTI chief said that now the BBC had also carried reports that the London flats were in possession of Sharif family since 90’s. He questioned as to why the government was not initiating court cases against BBC and ICIJ if it considered their reports fake and baseless.
He added that if Marryum Nawaz was owner of London flats then the letter of Qatari prince had no validity.
He added that Panama case had exposed the rulers, who had not even imagined of being held accountable.
Imran said that in democracy a Prime Minister rules on the basis of his/her moral authority.
