Nawaz, Maryam will celebrate Eid with family: hopes Shahbaz


Islamabad, Aug. 15 (TNS): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday expressed hope that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam will be “freed in time to celebrate Eid” with their family as no charges of corruption were proved against the deposed prime minister.

Speaking outside the accountability court, where Nawaz appeared for the hearing of the remaining two references, Shehbaz said PML-N parliamentary party and members of the Senate along with scores of supporters came to welcome their leader Nawaz.

Shehbaz complained about Nawaz being brought to court an in armoured personnel carrier and said not even the most hardcore terrorists are treated in this manner. “Everyone recorded the protest by holding placards. We have met Nawaz and he is in high spirits and wishes the entire nation in the spirit of independence,” he added.
