Islamabad: A video has gone viral on the social media in which Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Nihal Hashmi could be seen threatening the judges and JIT members probing the Panama Papers of dire consequences once they retire from service.
“Who you are taking accountability from is the son of Nawaz Sharif. We will teach you a lesson and lay siege to you once you retire and make you an example,” Hashmi could be heard as saying while addressing party workers at a function. “Who you are taking accountability, will be held accountable,” Hashmi says in the video in an apparent allusion to the judges and JIT members, who have been investigating the Sharif family. “Whosoever is taking accountability, listen, we never forgive, and take avenge of the excesses meted out to us.”
His statement elicited a sharp reaction from the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and its spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry demanded that the Supreme Court take notice of Nihal Hashmi’s direct threat to the JIT members and the judges probing the Panama Papers.
He said that the threat aimed at influencing the judges and JTI members probing the Panama Papers case. He said that they will never allow such intimidation to influence the judges and the JIT members.
