Pakistan News: Pakistan’s Defense Minister Khawaja Asif on Friday rejected a senior leader’s remarks that Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and other PML-N leaders have been acquitted in recent corruption cases because of a deal with the army. . He denied this claim. An anti-corruption court in Lahore this week dismissed a Rs 16 billion money laundering case against the prime minister and his son Hamza Shahbaz. Earlier, the Islamabad High Court had acquitted Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) vice-president Maryam Nawaz in the popular corruption case.

Told the former home minister a traitor

Former interior minister and dissident leader of the Pakistan People’s Party, Etejaz Ehsan, said this week that the army helped the Sharif family break free from corruption cases. Ehsan had said, “Bajwa (Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa) sahib has saved them (Sharif family) from conviction in the cases and they have committed a big crime.” Reacting to Ehsan’s remarks, Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said Ehsan was a “traitor” and made the remarks out of personal frustration.

‘We respect the constitution’

Asif said the PML-N leaders have always respected the Constitution and the courts and the recent court decisions have proved their innocence. “We have proved by our words and deeds that we do not want to violate the Constitution and the courts have given judgments based on understanding,” he said.
