Imran in habit of taking orders from the top: Nawaz
ISLAMABAD: Ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday while slamming PTI chief Imran Khan said the latter is in habit of taking “orders from the top”.
Speaking to media on the premises of the accountability court hearing corruption cases against him and members of his family members, the PML-N Quaid said the PTI chief has been disgracing the country’s politics.
Addressing the PTI, he said they were following orders “from the top” and added that people know very well what did orders from the top mean.
Sharif said people rejected the PTI chief in 2013 and the results of 2018 elections will be no different.
He also slammed Imran for voting PPP’s candidate in the Senate polls.
The former premier along with his daughter Maryam Nawaz and son-in-law retired Captain Safdar appeared today before the accountability court to stand trial in Flagship reference.
During today’s hearing, defence counsel Khawaja Haris resumed cross-examination of prosecution witness, NAB director general operations, Zahir Shah.
The Flagship reference pertained to the Sharif family’s offshore companies, including Flagship Investments Limited, Hartstone Properties Limited, Que Holdings Limited, Quint Eaton Place 2 Limited, Quint Saloane Limited (formerly Quint Eaton Place Limited), Quaint Limited, Flagship Securities Limited, Quint Gloucester Place Limited, Quint Paddington Limited (formerly Rivates Estates Limited).
Nawaz Sharif and his sons, Hussain and Hassan, have been named in the case, but he is the only standing trial as his sons are absconders from the law.
