ISLAMABAD (Web Desk) – Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will file review plea over Supreme Court’s (SC) Panamagate verdict that disqualified Nawaz Sharif.
Shahid Khaqan said that Nawaz Sharif has full right to defend himself before the full bench of the SC in the review petition, seeking reversal of an earlier disqualification order by a five judge-bench.
In an interview, he said though the government had fully implemented the apex court’s verdict but the people from different sections of society had not accepted it. He said the SC had the responsibility to decide the review petition as a special one.
To a question about resident visa issue, the premier said Nawaz Sharif had acquired the visa when he was not PM of the country and was in exile. He was declared disqualified for not accepting salary from his son’s company and not declaring it as his asset.
Khaqan said the Dubai government had issued millions of resident visas for a specific period and there is no law in Pakistan to bar acquiring such facility.
