Real challenge is bringing back looted money: Qadri reacts to Nawaz’s conviction
ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s conviction in Avenfield reference trial came as no surprise to Chairman Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Tahir-ul-Qadri as he said on Friday that The Godfather of corruption had reached his end.
He said the lion of circus had intuited about the court verdict, therefore, he had flown abroad.
“Such punishments are good practice; however the real challenge is bringing back the looted money of Pakistanis,” he said.
An accountability court has sentenced Nawaz Sharif to ten years in prison and fined him eight million pounds. His daughter, Maryam Safdar, has been sentenced to seven years in prison, while son-in-law retired Captain Safdar has been sentenced to one year in prison.
The PAT chief said the court verdict had put a stamp on what he had said about Nawaz’s corruption. Who should have been behind the bars 28 years ago, he had been serving as a prime minister, he said.
“The ruling against Nawaz is a crucial development towards the rule of law and the constitution for which judges and the NAB prosecutors deserve congratulations,” he added.
