Muslim League N and Maryam Nawaz jointly launched smear campaign against Judiciary: PAT

Secretary General Pakistan Awami Tehreek Khurram Nawaz Gandepur has said joint press conference of Maryam League about Accountability Court Judge was violation of Article 63 of constitution; Shahbaz Sharif, Khaqan Abbasi, Ahsan Iqbal and others who participated in the press conference can be disqualified for campaign to discredit judiciary as state organ as well as integrity of a Judge.

Addressing meeting of Advisory Council he said under Article 63 of constitution, mockery and humiliation of Judiciary and Armed forces are serious crimes. Judgments and sentences which were tried to make controversial in press conference, Sharif family have already filed appeals against them. He said if Sharif family truly wanted legal relief, they were supposed to speak on relevant forum; but instead they launched smear campaign to blackmail judiciary, which could create law & order situation in country, and hence deplorable.

Speaking at the occasion Secretary Information Noor Ullah Siddique said press conference of Muslim League N leaders was aimed to discredit judiciary and judges, and to create law & order situation for ulterior motives. However, Maryam League failed to achieve its aim this time, however, their resolve to discredit judiciary is not over yet. So, Government must follow the legal course, and Speaker National Assembly must notices to members of Sharif and Company who participated in the press conference.
