I am darling of law and SC certified Sadiq and Ameen, says Imran
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that he is the Ladla (darling) of law and verified as Sadiq and Ameen by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
Imran told journalists after appearing before an anti-terrorism court on Tuesday that the misuse of terrorism laws is destroying the country’s democracy. “You cannot use terrorism laws for political purposes. What kind of democracy is this?” he wondered.
He emphasised that with a view to improving the prevailing conditions in Pakistan, theNational Accountability Bureau must be strengthened and the criminal justice system must be improved. Contrary to it, he alleged that NAB is allowing absconders to travel outside Pakistan. “They are stealing the country’s money and expect not to be caught,” he said.
When the verdict was reserved, Imran had said that he was willing to surrender in case the court dismisses his bail pleas. He again came hard on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and alleged that Nawaz kept saying that he was disqualified on the basis of Iqama. He said Nawaz Sharif’s FZE company was non-operational, but it was being used to send Pakistan’s money abroad. He alleged that it was just another way of laundering money. Imran pointed out that the company did not have any other function except for laundering money.
Regarding the much-discussed and speculated sudden visit of the Sharif brothers to Saudi Arabia, Imran asserted that the two brothers should be ashamed of themselves, as they have approached another country to hide their theft. However, he said, both Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif should know that the nation will not accept any NRO. “The nation did not understand the repercussions of the first NRO but now it will not accept it at any cost,” he said.
Meanwhile, Imran said in a tweet after the court hearing that his name is Khan and he is not a terrorist. “My name is Khan and I am not a terrorist. Moreover, the SC has pronounced me Sadiq and Ameen and I am coming after the crooks!” he stated.
