Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif has reaffirmed that his brother and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s planned return to Pakistan on October 21 remains unchanged, despite the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) Amendment case. Shehbaz emphasized that the cases against Nawaz Sharif were politically motivated and lacked legal merit, and he would return to Pakistan as scheduled.
This announcement followed a meeting of PML-N leadership, including Shehbaz, Nawaz Suleman Sharif, and legal experts, in response to the Supreme Court’s verdict. Nawaz Sharif criticized outgoing Chief Justice Umar Atta Bandial, accusing him of making politically biased decisions that favored Imran Khan and violated his oath. Shehbaz expressed regret over the 2-1 decision and accused Bandial of restoring a dictator’s law.
Shehbaz also discussed Pakistan’s political landscape, attributing harm to a conspiracy that brought Khan to power and hindered Pakistan’s progress. He expressed confidence that if given a clear mandate, Nawaz Sharif would revive Pakistan’s economy to its 2017 levels when he was ousted.
Regarding Raja Riaz’s inclusion in PML-N, Shehbaz welcomed the former PTI lawmaker and opposition leader, hoping that his addition would strengthen the party.
Former Law Minister Azam Nazir Tarar stated that when Nawaz returns to Pakistan, he will face all cases in court and emphasized that there was no substance in the allegations against him. He pledged to work within the law and not undermine the judicial process.
Lawyer Amjad Pervez, who won Maryam Nawaz Sharif’s Avenfield case, maintained that the cases against the Sharif family were politically motivated and lacked evidence of corruption. He expressed confidence in winning the cases on merit and noted the importance of neutrality in judicial decisions.
PML-N Deputy Secretary General Attaullah Tarar asserted that the Supreme Court’s decision would not affect Nawaz Sharif’s planned return on October 21, as there was ample evidence of his innocence. Tarar affirmed that Nawaz Sharif’s return date remained unchanged and unaffected by the legal proceedings.
