No one’s above law including Jahangir Tareen, says PTI’s Senator Vawda

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Water Resources and senior Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Senator Faisal Vawda said Thursday Jahangir Khan Tareen is not being victimized by the party but since no one is above the law it is up to the courts to decide if he is innocent in the sugar scam or not, ARY News reported.

In a tweet laid out earlier today from Vawda’s official Twitter handle, the Senator said 17 sugar mills were found involved in the sugar scam as per the inquiry report and that poor Pakistanis paid the price of this corruption, suggesting that whoever may be behind the plunder will have it from the courts.

“PM IK [Prime Minister Imran Khan] and his govt will not tolerate whosoever that may be,” the senator’s tweet read.

He noted that it was on the courts to decide the culpability or innocence of those implicated in the inquiry report.
