ISLAMABAD: Firing broadside at the judges yet again, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has said that the language judges are using does not suit them.
Speaking to the media after his appearance before the accountability court, Nawaz said that judges who took oath under Pervez Musharraf are called PCO judges.
“Will PCO judges now give us lessons on morality,” he asked, adding that controversial statements from judges who were not even loyal to their oath would not be accepted.
He further said that no Pakistani or political leaders should not accept PCO judges.
He questioned whether there’s any accountability for the way the judges speak in retaliation. “We will not compromise on our self-respect,” he added.
“What is the difference between these judges and Imran Khan,” he questioned.
The accountability court, on Thursday dismissed the Sharif family’s application seeking exemption from personal attendance for a fortnight to visit ailing former first lady Kulsoom Nawaz.
Four witnesses have recorded statements before the court in the supplementary reference in Avenfield Apartments case.
During the last hearing, the Sharif family filed an application, seeking a fortnight’s exemption from personal attendance from February 19 onwards on the grounds that the former First Lady’s treatment is in final stages and the family needed to be with her in London.
